Big Bad Biteasaurus: A Bloomsbury Young Reader

Written by Malachy Doyle

Illustrated by David Creighton-Pester

Part of the Bloomsbury Young Readers Series

Key Stage 1

LoveReading View on Big Bad Biteasaurus: A Bloomsbury Young Reader

Book Band: Purple Ideal for ages 6+

This new series from Bloomsbury Education is geared at turning children into independent readers. Not only will the books give youngsters a boost into solo reading, they’ll also make it easier and more enjoyable for the adults helping children as they come with useful tips and notes. The books are short and divided into chapters thereby breaking the story into manageable chunks. The adventures are lively and fast-moving though told via short sentences and carefully chosen vocabulary: some words are highlighted in the Tips for Grown Ups section on the inside cover, so that children can learn them and their meanings. Full colour illustrations amplify the action and make the books really attractive to look at too. Written by favourite authors, these are well worth collecting and are just the thing for children ready for reading.
