It's a little kids book with cartoon dinosaurs. They do not look real and they are not scary.
It is a counting book. I know all those numbers. I could only read a few words on my own. I knew most of the dinosaurs. I learned lots of new words like lumbering and towering.
I liked the book and want to give it to Miles.
It amazes me to have a child pick up a dinosaur book and point out Tyrannosaurus, Velociraptor, Pterodactyl, and Stegosaurus even when the images are more cartoon cute then accurate.
Isabel is entering 1st grade next year and can pick out some of the words in the text. However, the action words.. ie.. striding, sauntering, lumbering, looming.. meant we had to do show and talk after reading the book. She can now show what a saunter is and her towering is totally awesome...
We also took time to discuss predator, herbivore, carnivore and, although not mentioned in the book, omnivore.
I appreciate the pronunciation guide at the back of book. I enjoyed the action words, even if unusual, as they did reflect the images and did give Isabel and me "playtime" action as we also lumbered and loomed around the store.
The thing that got this book a review was the inclusion of 0. Do I hear mathematicians applauding?
