Beyond the Dinosaurs: Monsters of the Air and Sea (I Can Read! Level 2: Reading With Help)

by Charlotte Lewis Brown (Author) Phil Wilson (Illustrator)

Beyond the Dinosaurs: Monsters of the Air and Sea (I Can Read! Level 2: Reading With Help)

Amazing creatures flew through the air and swam in the seas during the Age of the Dinosaurs! 

Strange and wonderful creatures shared the Earth with the dinosaurs. Kronosaurus ruled the seas with teeth as big as bananas and jaws more powerful than a Tyrannosaurs-rex’s. Flying Pterodaustros spit water through hundreds of long, thin teeth. Deinosuchus, the giant crocodile, preyed on unlucky dinosaurs. These and other amazing animals are introduced to young readers in an easy-to-read text and dynamic illustrations.

Beyond the Dinosaurs is a Level Two I Can Read, geared for kids who read on their own but still need a little help. Whether shared at home or in a classroom, the engaging stories, longer sentences, and language play of Level Two books are proven to help kids take their next steps toward reading success.

K-Gr3--This introduction to creatures "just as strange and wonderful as any dinosaur" pairs a straightforward text with action-packed, lifelike illustrations. The book's structure is similar to Brown's other "I Can Read!" titles, with a spread devoted to each of 11 prehistoric animals, including theElasmosaurus, Hainosaurus, and Archaeopteryx . Helpful pronunciation guides are included. Readers of this book will get a close-up feel for life millions of years ago. Sarah O'Holla, Village Community School, New York City

This addition to the dinosaur shelves should soar off with the ease of a leather-winged Pteranodon.
