In Honor of National Dino Day on May 17th, I am reading National Geographic Readers T. Rex by Andrea Silen. Giant teeth! Crushing bite! Slicing claws! And … feathers? Scientists have unearthed new knowledge about the king of the dinosaurs, and now you can, too.
Travel back in time to the Mesozoic forests to meet the mighty Tyrannosaurus rex. Learn how their bodies were perfectly adapted for hunting, how T. Rex Parents guarded their nests, and just how much meat they could guzzle down in a single bite. Then explore some of the fascinating fossils including Sue and Scotty that have helped scientists make important discoveries (for example, T. rex may not have roared at all!).National Geographic Readers’ combination of expert-vetted text, brilliant images, and a fun approach to reading has proved to be a winning formula with kids, parents, and educators. This level 1 text provides accessible information for kids just beginning to read on their own, perfect to encourage the scientists and explorers of tomorrow!
My Opinion: This book has 32 pages that are full color with the perfect amount of reading for new readers to have fun learning about T.Rex and start reading on their own.
