The mysterious ghost of the past haunts us again as we venture into the world of the Tyrannosaurus Rex. The dramatic illustrations and organization of yet another dinosaur books makes this title a must for any childs library at home or school. The simple text allows young readers to learn interesting new facts, others that they may already know but have forgotten or have escaped their reading in other dinosaur books. A devoted dinosaur reader will be riveted to the life-like pictures that the author creates through his dark and earthy illustrations to give the scary, eerie sensation of living during the prehistoric period. Be sure to check out the T. Rex facts and the Learn More in the back. The Learn More gives excellent books and websites for further investigation. The author also prepares newer readers with the Words to Know at the beginning so they have a vocabulary basis for a better learning opportunity and pronunciation keys for the harder-to-say words in the text. Even reluctant readers will keep their noses buried in this book as they look up the other titles about Diplodocus, Sinosauropteryx, and Triceratops in the I Like Dinosaurs series.
