Summary: This is an informational book about Dinosaurs. It explains and shows different kinds of dinosaurs and how to pronunciate them. This book shows the most popular ones and explains a little about them.

Personal Reaction: Great for younger children, they won't get discouraged by word overload. Very interesting illustrations and very colorful.

Classroom Extensions:
1. While doing a science of history lesson covering the dinosaur era you can read this book to inform your class of a few types of dinosuars.
2. After reading this book have students pick their favorite and draw the picture. Have them write and research what those dinosaurs may have eaten, where they would have lived, and other interesting facts. Hang around the classroom for students to view. ( )

Summary:
This book gives very basic information on dinosaurs. It gives information about how they look, if they are big or small, if they have spikes, or sharp teeth, the different shapes on each of them. It goes through each of the different kinds of dinosaurs.

Personal Reaction:
I personally love books about dinosaurs. It is very good and basic informational book! It's definitely a book for a young age group. In this book the illustrations were very bright and colorful!

Classroom Extension Ideas:
1) Teachers can do a unit on dinosaurs. This book will introduce the basic shapes of the dinosaurs. They could do an art activity that deals with shapes. They can either remake a dinosaur they have already seen or they can make up how they imagined their own dinosaur to look like.

2) With this book students can do a creative writing assignment. They can either pick their favorite dinosaur and tell a story of it's life, or they can create a story on how they think the dinosaurs appeared on Earth, or how they think they became extinct. ( )

Nice solid colors. The books is not a story, but talks about different kinds of dinosaurs that lived long ago. It is good to see how many different types. I used the book for library Story Time (ages 3 – 5) and asked them to count: spikes on a tail, horns on a head, etc. They loved learning about Dinosaurs!
