A field trip to learn about American History turns into an adventure for Arthur as he attempts to find the restroom.
Watch Out For: The picture on the cover shows Arthur running from a scary looking T Rex, but Arthur never sees the dinosaurs in the book. Arthur ends up lost in the back hallways on the museum and wanders into a few exhibits. Especially adventurous kids may not need this encouragement!
For an early reader or curious pre-schooler, Dinosaur Days is a nice introduction to the world of the dinos. Each dinosaur is illustrated in action, and names are accompanied by a pronunciation guide. The short book gives a brief idea of the time span in which dinosaurs lived, and some contemporary animals.
Watch Out For: There are several drawings of dinosaurs fighting and eating others. The last page, concerning the end of the dinosaurs, shows a dead anatosaurus and rats eating dinosaur eggs. Several common theories are given, but the exact cause of the extinction is not specified.
