This book is an easy read for a fifth grade class. The silly predicaments Nate and his dinosaur get in are great. Also there is suspense and frustration when Nate is denied a home for the rare/extinct animal. This chapter book has few pictures throughout but they are useful in assisting the imagination in order create this scenario in your mind. In this book there are also many true facts about dinosaurs that were great. Like how much it eats, grows, and weighs.
Author Oliver Butterworth has gifted generations with a classic satire on the American economic and political system, peopled by a cast of amusing characters with some really unforgettable names.
In trying to protect his odd pet from a veritable army of hucksters of every stripe who are trying to exploit "Uncle Beazley" for their own ends, Nate Twitchell teaches us a crucial civics lesson on the importance of free speech in a free society.
A fun and important book written for ten year olds, THE ENORMOUS EGG is appropriate for adults as well. Strongly recommended for all!
Every year it's a classroom favorite with both boys and girls. Kids love fantastic stories and dinosaurs. This book has both!
One day when Nate was fishing he met a dinosaur scientist named Dr. Ziemer. Dr Ziemer came every few weeks to see how the dinosaur was doing. Nate's Dad was the newspaper reporter for New Hampshire and he wrote an article about the dinosaur. People from Washington DC were calling about the dinosaur. All these people came and all these scientists came. During this time the dinosaur was getting bigger and bigger and bigger. Dr. Ziemer wanted Uncle Beasley to go to Washington DC so that scientists could study him but Nate didn't want that to happen. But when his teacher said that he could stay with the dinosaur for three weeks (and miss school) Nate said, "yes." In Washington DC a Senator wanted to kill the dinosaur because he thought it was too expensive to feed. Nate went on tv and people from all the states came to see Uncle Beasley and put money in a jar to help pay for his food. They ve $240,271.31! And the dinosaur was saved.
I liked this book because it was interesting. This is the first time I read a book about an egg that had a dinosaur in it.
