At last Robert realized that dinosaurs are not always fun but... When Robert was finally back home, he is now planning his next adventure.




DINOSAURS TIME
By Parish, Peggy


This is a great basic beginning reader about dinosaurs. It explains how to pronounce the names of each dinosaur (very important for readers just beginning to sound things out) and gives basic information about them. It’s all very simple, but great for kids who want to read about Dinosaurs when most books on the topic are going to be way too difficult for them to read on their own.







Activity/Craft:  (Hermit Crab)

Part of the story hour, kids not only learned through listening the stories. In mean time children also take time to experience how to make crafts related to the books read by coloring, cutting, painting and using clue.
