Gentle plant-eating dinosaurs live by the river. Find out what happens when a fierce meat-eater approaches! DK level 1 beginning to read
  jhawn | Jul 31, 2017 |
This book was told through the view of a triceratop that explained what they ate, how they lived, and then it goes into how everyone is scared of the T-rex. It says how each animal knows it is coming and how each animal reacts. Then the book goes into how the triceratop wants to stab the t-rex and how it wants to kill it.

I never read this book as a child, and really did not like the book now. I did not like the part about how the triceratop wanted to stab the t-rex, and it did not appeal to me as a good informational book about dinosaurs.

I think that if I did read the book to the class I would have them create their favorite dinosaur through paper mache. Also, they could also possibly go to a museum and look at the dinosaurs that they read about and write in a journal their favorite dino.

Picture dictionary boxes with word labels "show" the meanings of words. These books contain between 400 and 450 words each, and they are 80 percent pictures and 20 percent text. The Dorling Kindersley Readers combine an enticing visual layout with high-interest, easy-to-read stories to captivate and delight young bookworms who are just getting started. Written by leading children's authors and compiled in consultation with literacy experts, these engaging books build reader confidence along with a lifelong appreciation for nonfiction, classic stories, and biographies. There is a DK Reader to interest every child at every level, from preschool to grade 4.
