Three Little Dinosaursby Charles Fuge (Author, Illustrator)
Perfect for Read-Alouds!
Scratch, Spike and Lofty are three little dinosaurs and they are best friends. They like to play hide and seek in the forest. They like splashing around in the lake. Sometimes they liked to do cave-painting. But most of all they liked to pretend to FLY!
One day Lofty wonders if Dinosaurs could really fly! Along with his friends, they decide to find out for themselves.
But of course, they all ended up tumbling down instead. Sniff declares that dinosaurs really can’t fly! Suddenly, they hear a voice call out to them and say “Of course they do!”. Who does this voice belong to? And where is it coming from?
Three Little Dinosaur is a simple story about exploring, playing and making new friends. The characters of Scratch, Spike and Lofty are very appealing. The story although simple, weaves cleverly into themes of friendship and play. Charles Fuge is well known for his “Wombat” series of books for this age group. The illustrations of dinos in this book will be a hit with the little ones.
A wonderful story for bedtime reading or a school read-aloud for the young ones.
