Synopsis

Dinosaur Fun by Fiona Watt

This is a delightful book filled with drawing and painting, and cutting and sticking activities, that use craft materials found around the home. It includes projects such as a printed T-rex, a cut-out flying pterosaur, a painted triceratops and a dinosaur made from a paper plate. Each activity is specially designed for young children to share with an adult, and will help to develop important learning skills such as hand control and concentration.

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!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
