To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My 2.5 year old loves it. He's a big dinosaur fan so we read it over and over again every night before bed for a while (at his request) and now he knows a lot of the words and recites it as we go. The rhyming and repetition definitely helps (although I skip some of the repeated parts when we need a quicker story before bed!)
After borrowing this from the library, I loved it so much that I had to buy it. I'm not generally a fan of poems or rhyming stories, but I enjoy reading this book to my kids more than any other. The subject matter is timeless and the exciting, fast-paced rhyme flows oh so easily, slowing down at the end to calm the children down ready for bed. As long as you can manage names like "Deinosuchus" and "Deinonychuses" without stumbling and spoiling the rhythm, this is ideal bedtime reading for pre-school children. I feel sure that it will also be a good one for slightly older children to practise their reading.
This is a MUST HAVE for all little'uns!! My nephew is 2 going on 3, and he absolutely loves it. Naturally, it's the book he always goes for when it comes to bedtime stories. The alliterative style makes it fun and enjoyable for both kids and adults - seriously, I get as much pleasure reading it as he does listening to it!
We bought this book for our 3-year old dinosaur mad little boy. It was immediately a huge hit. The rhymes are lovely and read really well (although I have to admit to having practiced the dinosaur names a few times before reading it to him!). The pictures are also great and very entertaining. Our little boy frequently pulls this off the shelf to 'read' and is already able to recit it along with us (and at numerous times during the day when he's stomping around the lounge pretending to be a dinosaur!)
