Synopsis

Right out of Jurassic Park, Fighting Dinosaurs shows young readers how dinosaurs fared in combat with each other. The plant eaters, of course, had all kinds of armor—more than any medieval knight. There were spikes and horns and thick-plated skin. These ancient creatures needed such defenses, because the meat eaters were fast and strong and often had terrifying teeth! Young readers will be fascinated by scenes of predators hunting in packs and the amazing ways that nature helped the plant eaters protect themselves. Developed by literacy experts, Fighting Dinosaurs features controlled text with appropriate vocabulary, grammar, and sentence structure for emergent readers.
Fighting Dinosaurs is part of Bearport’s I Love Reading: Dino World series.
