Walking with Dinosaurs: The 3D Movie: Friends Stick Together - OPTIONAL

Barad-Cutler, Alexis  Walking with Dinosaurs: The 3D Movie: Friends Stick Together  Harper, 2013.  $16.99  EARLY READER  Content: G.  

A dinosaur named Patchi is born with his brothers and sisters, but he is a bit clumsy and curious.  Another dinosaur tries to take Patchi, and in the process he puts a hole in Patchi’s frill on his head.  Patchi feels small and insignificant, but after he gets lost during the first migration he becomes friends with Juniper and they help each other through the migration.  Patchi becomes strong and helps other dinosaurs the next time they have to migrate.  

There are multiple things wrong with this book.  First, the pictures are taken from the movie and they are dark and blurry which makes it hard to figure out what is in the picture.  Second, it’s an early reader but it says the dinosaurs species over and over, which I think makes it hard for an early reader.  Third, it tries to tell too much of the story and it comes across choppy and uninteresting.  

EL(K-3) -OPTIONAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
