K-Gr 3—Lesser-known dinosaurs come to life in this series for the early grades. Basic facts, such as what each dinosaur ate and how they lived, are paired with full-page, scientifically rendered digital illustrations that will captivate and excite young readers. Words and concepts are in bold, which may prompt discussion and encourage vocabulary development. The books also provide an introduction to the fossils of each dinosaur, as well as illustrations of where the fossils were geographically discovered. Maps of each discovery site provide context; a glossary of new terms and more fast facts are included at the end of each book, inspiring further exploration.
VERDICT A much-needed addition to any Spanish or bilingual collection to help mono- or dual-language readers discover dinosaurs beyond T. rex.
