All too often, children's books that have been translated into Spanish lose the charm of the original story; the translators seem to be more concerned with translating literally rather than capturing the "spirit" of the story (and the all so important rhyme). Happily, this is NOT the case in, "Como Comen los Dinosaurios". It is fun to read and sure to be enjoyed by your novice Spanish reader.
For those interested in other Spanish children's books, I heartily recommend "Huevos Verdes con Jamon", the Spanish version of Dr Seuss' classic "Green Eggs and Ham", which keeps true to the "rhythm" of the original.
