Dinosaurs (Smithsonian Kids All-Star Readers Level 2)
Roar with the dinosaurs and learn to read with the Smithsonian! Smithsonian Kids All Star Readers: Dinosaurs Level 2 includes four dinosaur readers that cover everything from T. rex to fossils. Developed with esteemed childhood literacy expert Dr. Adria Klein, this collection is designed to encourage reading comprehension through simple factual texts, new phonic structures, familiar vocabulary, and more. After finishing each reader, children can use the quizzes and glossaries to reinforce reading comprehension.
Now this is the way I would like to practice my reading. These leveled readers are actually six separate books (each about 30 pgs long) combined into one volume. Several things set them apart. The content is all non-fiction, interesting and in-depth information from real world categories like outer space, insects, safari animals, and world wonders. Each section (i.e. book within the book) provides detailed information, glorious pictures, and intriguing content such as the food chain segment in the predators section of the Level 4 Endless Explorations book or the section on baby reptiles in the Level 1 Early Adventures book. But that's not all! There is a glossary and quiz at the end of each of these sections along with a set of six info cards that are perforated for easy removal (36 cards per book). Books have around 200 pages, and all are hc except for Level 3 which is pb. ~ Janice
