Read full description of the books:
If someone is getting this for a child who is at this level of reading I'd say it's pretty good. *Unless* the child already is interested in dinosaurs that is. The info here is so plainly simple, such everyday knowledge about dinosaurs that the kid will probably be bored and not even want to read it. Personally, since this is supposed to be for kids in grades 1-3, I would think that the info would be along the same lines.
I picked this up yesterday because not only does my five year old loves dinos but she's starting to read. She's in no way ready for this herself but she's identifying words, trying new ones out, etc. so I figured what the hey.
I don't even think they used the word 'fossil'. I think the book just used 'dinosaur bones'. Like it's for a 2 year old.
I'm glancing back through this now, seeing if there was even one little piece of info that my five year old didn't know. Granted, she's a dinosaur freak and knows more than the average adult but if I had to guess I'd say she isn't special there. There have to be other kids so into dinosaurs, her age and maybe younger even, that know these same things. Let's see.
Nothing. The only thing I could say was remotely "new" - as in not frequently talked about - was the Saltopus and even this dinosaur is known to most children who are into learning fino facts.
Shouldn't the info correlate with the target audiences age? If I write a book targeting children and make it about Wall Street are they going to read it?
I'm not trying to be too harsh - this is good for kids reading at this level who may not be so into dinosaurs. I'm not sure how I wish this would have been conveyed but looking at the cover and title it makes one think a dino fan would enjoy it. :(
