MY T-REX HAS A TOOTHACHE by Elwyn Tate – my review no.52

on 22/05/2016

This is a cute story in rhyme (hats off to anyone who rhymes – it helps kids read and pronounce words).

I’ve just read it with my 6-year-old who loves dinosaurs, and she loved the illustrations, which more than compliment the verse. The plot and the rhythm lend themselves to TPR teaching and role-play, so you might not be picky about historical and biological accuracy.

Dinosaurs make things fun for kids, and if this book helps your child learn to love reading, or at least makes it easier for them to wait for a loose tooth fall out, so be it. Warning;): kids who love a good T-Rex may roar the book, instead of reading it!
