K picked this book up from his school library. This was a perfect book for K. Not only does he get to read about a sport he gets to read about dinosaurs as well. With Dino-Football, you get a story told by rhyming with great pictures to go with what is being told. But who will win? The Scales or the Blades? It is not a competition feel within the book like most stories tell with a sport. It is more fun, and will have you laughing at what the dinosaurs are going to be doing next to get the winning goal. Totally recommend for the younger kids on up.
I recently received an ARC of this book and read it with my 5 year old son. His thoughts: 1. He loved the pictures. They were bright and full of action and kept his interest throughout. 2. He loved the competition aspect of the story. He picked a favorite team and rooted for them through the entire story just as if he were watching a real football game on tv. 3. This book made him feel like he had something in common with his dad who loves football. My thoughts: 1. I agree that the illustrations were fantastic. They were colorful and made us laugh. 2. The story itself is cute and is exciting when read aloud - reminiscent of a sports announcer calling plays during a live game. This really kept my son engaged and excited about the book. 3. There are quite a few football terms that many kids - younger children in particular - may not understand (for example: "Holding. Penalty declined," "tailgating," "coin toss" among others). My son did not understand all of these terms but we were able to have a conversation afterward about what they meant. For some kids this is a good opportunity to become more familiar with the game. For others this may detract from the story. Overall this was a fun read and would be enjoyed by any sports and/or dinosaur fan.
