Superb book for early readers KS1 (age 5-7)
on 17 January 2010
My 6 year old absolutely adored this book which he has been reading aloud to me every evening (he reads a chapter of Dinosaur Cove to me, then I read Astrosaurs to him as our bedtime stories!). Exciting story, lovely black and white illustrations to keep a child interested, and well chosen text, most of which will be familiar to a young reader, but with enough new words (and dinosaur names etc) to stretch them a little.
Just to give you an idea about the reading level/ age of this book, DS is reading at the White book band level, and has found this book possibly slightly easier than the texts he is used to. Probably more boys than girls will find it appealing - the story is based on 2 8-year-old boys - but any dino-keen child will enjoy it.
He is desperate to get the next book, so I've ordered the next few in the series from Amazon! Superb.
