Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-Told in first person, present tense, this rather anemic easy-reader includes many dinosaur facts. A triceratops tells of his adventures as he wanders away from his herd and must fight a tyrannosaurus. Clear photos of small dinosaur models mixed with color drawings give the appearance of an informational text. A "Picture word list" is included. True dinosaur aficionados will expect more realistic drawings and a more plausible text.

I bought this book for my son, he has not yet started to learn to read as he just turned four years old. I bought this book because I wanted something simple and kid friendly about dinosaurs as he really likes dinosaurs! So looking at this book I knew it would be too advanced for him to try to read.
I like how the DK readers have a "note to parents" in the beginning of the book, it reminds you that all kids read at different levels at different ages and the books are helping your child to learn by just looking and reading them together.
The pictures in the book are nice and colorful and are as realistic as dinosaurs can be. I love that it has the correct pronunciation of the dinosaurs names, that helped me when I was reading it too my son. My son really enjoyed me reading the book to him.

Format: Paperback
I've read over 30 dinosaur books aimed at young children. This is one of the best-written. That's because it avoids misleading statements and dull statistical facts. Instead, it emphasizes behavior, adaptations, and the broader ecological context.

The book presents a pleasant narrative telling the day in the life of a Tricerotops. The sentences are simple, designed for beginning readers but nonetheless interesting. "...I spend all day eating plants. I snip off leaves and twigs with my sharp beak. I live in a group called a herd. We keep watch for fierce dinosaurs..."

Along the way, the narrator mentions several other dinosaurs, each pictured and named by genus:

* Ornithomimus
* Edmontosaurus
* Pachycephalosaurus
* Parasaurolophus
* Ankylosaurus

And of course Tyrannosaurus, who is the villain of the piece. About a third of the story is devoted to an attack by this predator. The Tricerotops successfully fights him off, and nobody gets killed. The story should please most kids between the ages of 3 and 6 years.

The book's weak point is it's illustrations. The book relies heavily on photographs of models--models which are often posed against a plain white background. The results feel rather lifeless. The few human-illustrated pages in the book appear to come from different stock sources (i.e., they aren't by the same illustrator). Ruth Thomson's clear and dramatic writing deserve better visual support.

My grandson loves this book. He was quoting passages from it when he was telling me what book he wanted me to read to him. It's paperback, at least the $3.99 version is. Realistic pictures and information.

My son is dyslexic and finding books of interest to help him learn to read is hard. He loves dinosaurs and the pictures in this book are realistic. The text is 1st grade level (a little challenging for him)but he wants to try to read this one every night. Great choice for all young dino crazed readers.

I don't know if girls are into these beasts as much as boys; but my son is crazy for them! So of course, now I'm into them to! I enjoy the book and learn from it right along with my little guy. A worthwhile purchase!
