Dino Tracks
Step back in time and follow dinosaur tracks around the world. Whether made by a few dinosaurs or large groups, these tracks provide clues to the movement and behavior of these lovable ancient creatures. What dinosaurs made the tracks and what do scientists think they were doing when they made them? The author tells the story in rhythmic rhyme that may be sung to the tune of Over the River and Through the Woods.

"...Helpful facts and explanations are buried within the text. The dinosaurs are colorful and even feathered, yet the text references fictional Jurassic Park..."
School Library Journal

The book is written in rhymes so I had fun reading book it was like dino poem mystery although I had my mom read book quite a few times before I fully understand it. I loved all kind of dinosaurs pictures in book,they demonstrates what would have happened. My mommy made us guess first and then she read the page and it was kind of fun game to see whether we were right or not and most of the time we were. At the end of the book they have fun facts about dinosaurs which I love like largest dinosaur was as long as four school buses. I love being dino detective after reading this book."
