My two and four year old boys love reading. Reading has always been a part of our daily morning and bedtime routine so to keep them interested in reading, we introduce them to new books whenever we can. At their current ages, they’re very much into books with colorful illustrations, big bold letters, and fun, easy to read words.
Recently, we received an advance reader’s copy of the new picture book Max Spaniel: Dinosaur Hunt by writer and illustrator David Catrow. What a very fun read and definitely very appropriate for my kids’ reading levels!
This picture book is just a chock-full of amusement! This is definitely a book that will entertain and inspire your child’s sense of adventure. The texts are very easy to read for beginning readers and the fantastic illustrations and watercolor artwork in each page will keep them reading until the very end.
My boys are enjoying this book very much- especially my four year old who is somewhat an advanced beginning reader and definitely into anything dinosaurs right now. This book has been a wonderful addition to my kids’ reading library!
MAX SPANIEL PRODUCT DETAILS:
Max is no ordinary dog. He is a great hunter! His prize of choice? Dinosaurs! But Max simply can’t hunt dinosaurs inside. For that, he must go on a true adventure to the unexplored wild of the backyard. As this zany canine prowls the yard, he encounters bicycles, toys, a rake, and a gardening hose. But to Max, the intrepid dinosaur hunter, these items are no mere playthings and grooming implements–they are dinosaur bones! Piece by piece, the bloodhound puts together a towering display of dinosaurian strength that he is sure will strike fear into the hearts of any trespassers!
Max Spaniel: Dinosaur Hunt is recommended for kids ages 4-8. You can get your own copy now at leading book retailers and at Amazon for $6.99.
