In this rhyming story designed to engage early readers, charming characters combine with simple text, lively illustrations, and laugh-out-loud humor to help boost kids' confidence and create lifelong readers!
Dino-zombies--that's right, real dinosaur zombies--are on the hunt. But don't worry, there's no need to be scared. Just join the creepy crew as they trick-or-treat to collect and consume all the candy they can!
Exciting, easy-to-read books are the stepping stone a young reader needs to bridge the gap between being a beginner and being fluent.
Dino-Zombies! By Rick Chrustowski is an exciting and engaging picture book for early readers who celebrate Halloween. Dino-zombies of all shapes and sizes come out to hunt for candy on Halloween night, but these zombies aren’t scary. They eat sugary candy to survive, leaving little for the other trick-or-treaters.
There is a lot to love about this cute story. The illustrations are bold and colorful. There is something to find on every page from candy falling through a dino’s stomach to bones and a bit of gore (all kid appropriate). I especially enjoyed the rhyming nature of the story. It keeps young children engaged and helps with sounding out some of the harder and larger words.
Final Thought: Dino-Zombies! is a spooky treat for early readers looking forward to Halloween. Kids will be sure to ask to read this one over and over again.
