Kindle Books For Kids: A Pocketful of Dinosaurs

How would you like to have a pocketful of dinosaurs?

Kids will love "A Pocketful of Dinosaurs" by Scott Gordon. This ebook provides 2D and 3D illustrations and factual information about dinosaurs and the world they lived in. Kids (and parents) will appreciate the pronunciation guides for hard-to-pronounce dinosaur names.

About the Author
Scott Gordon is the author of several children's books, including A Pocketful of Dinosaurs, My Little Pet Dragon, My Crazy Pet Frog, Pigtastic and A Little Book About You. Currently he is hard at work on his next two projects: Ninja Robot Repairmen and Baby Bee.

Kids Love Dinosaurs
This ebook begins with a picture of a blue denim pocket and three colorful little dinosaurs jumping from the pocket. Wouldn't kids love to have a pocket like this?

These three dinosaurs teach the reader about the real-live dinosaurs that once roamed the world. Readers will learn what the dinosaurs looked like from realistic 3D illustrations.

Kids will love a computer-generated illustration of a T-Rex hovering over a frightened boy. The author then shows the difference between the way the dinosaur looked in real life and how the same animal looks as a skeleton in a museum.

This ebook lists ten links to online dinosaur resources that are appropriate for children. Kids can use these resources to learn more about dinosaurs and view dinosaur exhibits.

My Thoughts
This 31-page ebook will educate and entertain young readers. I really enjoyed the contrast between the cartoon-like dinosaurs that narrate the story and the realistic 3D pictures of dinosaurs.

This book is a good mix of fiction and non-fiction. The little dinosaurs in the pocket appear throughout the book and add a light touch to the facts presented in the text.

I found this book to be a very good fit for the Kindle. The pictures are large and dramatic. This book is a very pleasing visual experience on the ereader.

I recommend this book to all kids who love dinosaur books (I think that would include almost ALL kids.) This ebook is great for reading aloud or independent reading. It will inspire older readers to investigate and research the information presented in this book.

My Rating: 5 STARS Out Of 5
