A day planting seeds with Mum turns out to be much more fun than Albie could have ever imagined when he discovers his seeds have magically grown a great big jurassic jungle full of colourful dinosaurs. Brilliant and very funny.

Synopsis

How to Grow a Dinosaur by Caryl Hart

Albie is a normal little boy who has extraordinary adventures. When he helps his mum in the garden by planting some seeds, he can't quite believe his eyes the next morning. The garden has grown beyond all belief and these are not just any old plants - oh, no - Albie's seeds have grown into great big jurassic jungle! He rushes outside to discover what else has grown - a fantastic mix of real live DINOSAURS! A colourful, funny follow-up to Supermarket Zoo.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
