This is such a cute little book. It’s perfect for those kids that are just graduating from the early readers and starting to tackle bigger books on their own. It is the Wild West with dinosaurs, and my 1st grader really got a kick out of it. For the most part he prefers non-fiction “animal” books with lots of photos. This book had enough facts in it that he enjoyed it even though it is fiction.
The illustrations are nicely done and very cartoony. His favorite drawings were the ones on “notebook paper” that had facts on them, though he did mention that he wished there were more pictures and more facts. I think “more pictures” is a common complaint of kids in this age range.
How to Tame a Triceratops is the first book in the Dino Riders series, and I am positive we will be checking the other books out as well.
I received an advance review copy of this book that I have chosen to review.
