    excellent dinosaur adventure

    I don't know how we missed the Dinosaur Cove series, but my kids and I are happy to have discovered them. My 6 year-old son who loves anything dinosaur, was delighted to have first my husband read the whole book to him and then myself. My 8 year-old daughter joined us for the second reading. Needless to say, my son LOVED this book and can't wait for me to read him the second book in this series. My daughter enjoyed it too.

    This book is great for learning because it includes interesting facts about the dinosaurs it features in the story. Right at the start of the book, fact files on the characters and the dinosaurs that look like they were retrieved from a computer screen get the readers in a "let's discover" mode. The black and white illustrations are perfect for this age group and the maps and glossary are an added bonus.

    The story is well paced, adventurous with inquisitive boy characters who become fast friends. There's plenty of action and suspense without being scary. I did tell my kids that, although discovering and exploring a cave was imaginative and fun in the book, they were never to venture into one without an adult.

    This is a great series for both boys and girls who love dinosaurs and exploring the outdoors. We look forward to reading the next book in this exciting series!

    Great book series

    My daughter age 6 loves dinosaurs and she is just starting to learn to read. These are not for true beginning readers but it is getting her used to chapter books. They are not too long. It only took us about 30 min to read the whole book. She loves the story and wants the rest of the series.

    Good story

    My 7 year old son loved this book! I'm buying the rest of the series hoping to motivate him to read more.

    My son loves this book

    My 7 yo son is into dinosaurs and has been resisting reading. So when I saw this series I decided to get the first book to try it out since the T-Rex is his favorite dinosaur. Surprisingly the book was interesting to mom too. It held my ds attention and we are reading it again together one chapter at a time. I read it to him the first go through as it is a little above his reading skills, but he is motivated to read it. Just enough action to keep him hooked and no gore to keep mom happy. Of course now he wishes he could find a cave to walk through and find real dinosaurs. I plan to keep buying him the rest of the series.
