Amazon SummaryShortly after a breakfast generously supplied with pancakes, Nate the Great got an urgent call from Annie.

“I lost a picture,” said Annie. “Can you help me find it?”

“Of course,” said Nate. “I have found lost balloons, books, slippers, chickens. Even a lost goldfish. Now I, Nate the Great, will find a lost picture.”

“Oh, good,” Annie said.

Nate, with the cool detachment of a Sam Spade, immediately plunges into his new and baffling case. Getting all the facts, asking the right questions, narrowing down the suspects. Nate, the boy detective who “likes to work alone,” solves the mystery and tracks down the culprit. In the process he also discovers the whereabouts of Super Hex, the missing cat.

Dino Review: Nate likes to solve mysteries. He finds his friend’s picture of a dog. Her brother painted over the picture and that wasn’t very nice.  

Mommy Review: What a cute book, we read it in one sitting, but will have to do more comprehension activities with the book. Maybe a chart for next time…My prediction is…, Nate asked the following people…. and I was wrong/right, the person who did it was….

Dinosaur Reads…Scaredy Squirrel at Night

Dino here, now that I am starting kindergarten in the fall, I have to read certain books over the summer. Mommy is making me start now and I really like the books she borrows from the library. The new library is really big and has lots of space to walk around, play, and books to find. I want to read all the books, but Mommy says only a few at a time.

Amazon SummaryScaredy never sleeps — sleep might mean bad dreams about dragons, ghosts, vampire bats and polka-dot monsters. Our wide-eyed hero has a plan: stay awake all night, every night. Between counting stars, playing cymbals and making scrapbooks, he does a good job of avoiding dreamland. With exhaustion taking its toll, Scaredy comes face-to-face with an alarming horoscope prediction: All his dreams are about to come true! He must prepare for the worst and his Bad Dream Action Plan includes a fire extinguisher to snuff out dragons and a fan to blast away ghosts. But when disaster strikes, will Scaredy survive this ordeal? Will he thank his lucky stars? Will he find sweet dreams? Scaredy Squirrel at Night tackles a fear everyone — and especially the young — can relate to. It’s a bedtime story to make light of kids’ fear of the dark and a fable for our sleep-deprived society.

Dino Review: I like Scardey Squirrel. He has lots of plans and tries to get the bad dreams. He thinks if he sleeps he will be scared. You know what? His plan doesn’t work and he falls asleep. He has good dreams and wants to sleep at night. 

Mommy Review: I think Dino will love this series, it’s visually appealing but not over done. Scaredy organizes his plans quite well and explains negatives of no sleep and positives of sleep..which models organizational skills. A great book and can’t wait to read more adventures about Scaredy.
