    Katie and the Dinosaurs By James Mayhew


    3.5 STARSI got this book because when I was a little girl and called Katie I loved dinosaurs They were exciting and fascinating and like some bit of magic that existed once and still baffled grown ups So, it s funny and fitting that this story reminds me of one I would have written as a kid Katie and her Grandma go to the natural history museum and Katie skips off to look at the dinos while Grandma snoozes Katie finds a door that she really SHOULDN T open, but she goes in anyway and is transport [...]

    This is a great book for beginning to think about dinosaurs It explores a range of different dinosaurs and touches on whether they are herbivores or carnivores Children will really enjoy the sense of adventure as they follow Katie They will also love spotting the T Rex following Katie throughout Well written with attractive illustrations The back page identifying different dinosaurs and how to pronounce their names is a nice touch.

    Another Katie book but this one doesn t involve any paintings It s the dinosaurs that come alive as she visits the museum A lovely sciencey theme that would be a great lead in story for a science unit on dinosaurs.

    I really don t like that in the early Katie books, she disobeys signs and warnings.

    Some of the best children s books ever

    Very story heavy like Carrick
