Dinosaur Rescue! – a book review

Dinosaur Rescue!Today we have a treat for any dinosaur mad book lover who also loves emergency vehicles.  Dinosaur Rescue!  sounded and looked just up Monkey’s street before we’d even opened the first page.

Dinosaur Rescue!Dinosaur Rescue! is a 32 page paperback picture book, written and illustrated by Penny Dale.  It was published in January of this year, and features a free stories aloud smartphone audio book.

There is a lot of repetitive text throughout Dinosaur Rescue! which makes it a great book for kids to get involved with.  As the first pages feature a steam train with a dinosaur as a train driver, Monkey was hooked immediately.  The short lines of text also help to build the urgency of the situation as a pick up truck gets stuck across a level crossing.  We were both kept on tender hooks.

Dinosaur Rescue!The illustrations are full of action and help to build the tension, can all the emergency services and the multitude of dinosaurs work together to save the day?

Dinosaur Rescue! is the third in a series of Dinosaur stories from Penny Dale.  I’m off in search of Dinosaur Dig! as I just know Monkey will love that too.

Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school.We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds.We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply.
