I borrowed a library Usborne First Reading edition. My son isn't a reader yet, but it's quite clearly a good choice for beginners - subject, repetition, story, characters and language all combine into an engaging book that won't seem like a chore to read, but a fun story.

For my non-reading preschooler, it's a book where he gets to go "raaaah!!" a lot. He looked out for the cues and loved the story of the naughty dinosaur who loses his roar after playing tricks on his friends.

Sid nurses his voice back and promises himself he won't scare his friends again. But what if his roar is actually useful?

It's a very simple tale, one that could actually be fleshed out into something much longer, but this version is perfect for young children.

I like the style of illustration and repeated phrases and the morals behind the story as well.

Great for 2 year olds up to emergent readers.

Format: Hardcover
From the 'Usborne First Reading' series of books.........but will it last?

This particular book is : LEVEL THREE.

From the back cover:

'Sid enjoys scaring the other dinosaurs with his mighty roar. They don't find it so funny. But what would happen if Sid ever lost his voice? He's about to find out.'

48 high quality shiny pages in the popular 2-page spread format.
Numbered pages.
Beautifully illustrated throughout in vibrant colours, this super book is further enhanced by meaningful expressions, a repeat element and some speech bubbles. Complete with royal blue ribbon bookmark!
Clear, easy-to-read text, enhanced in places FOR EFFECT!

Example of text:

'This is a story about five dinosaurs - Sid, Spike, Ross, Ollie and Rex.
Sid lived in the middle of a big forest.
He liked living in the forest.
He liked c r a s h i n g through bushes.
He liked c l i m b I n g tall trees.
And he liked s p l a s h i n g in the river.......'

...but his most irritating habit gets him into a bit of trouble and he realises that it is not so much fun being on the receiving end! He has a rest, ponders and decides to change his ways.....until his main talent REALLY is needed......... but .......has he still got it?

This is a great book for those learning to read but also for toddlers who are interested in dinosaurs. Both my kids loved it and liked to join in with the roars and the croaks!

Bought for my 6 year old sister who is learning to read. Ideal text and language for those learning to read. A longer book than they will initially be used to but there's no harm in it taking more than one session to complete.
She loves it, her favourite book at the moment. Well illustrated too.

My little boy was looking for a dinosaur book to read, and the title of this book caught his eye. The book is about a dinosaur, who kept on scaring his friends by creeping up behind them and roaring really load. This led to the dinosaur losing his voice!
The book is about friendship being tested and courage. My little boy enjoyed the story, illustrations and understood the moral of the story. It is a lovely story about friendship.

Bought for my two year old grandson who loves dinosaurs. The story gives plenty of opportunity for children to interact and join in. I also read it to a 4 year old who equally enjoyed the story. So good on so many levels.

A fantastic story which gets children vocally involved with the repition of the roars throughout the story. Great illustrations, and well written, I use this as a drama teacher with nursery, reception and year one children, all of which love it! It's also a great story to reenact, and all my children still talk about this story weeks later.

I bought this as a present for my nephew for his 3rd birthday. He absolutely adored it and so did my little girl who was reluctant to hand it over as a present! Well written and beautifully illustrated...a firm favourite for both boys and girls alike!
