This series combines reference-style information with an imaginative diary approach -- each book charts the observations, thoughts, sketches, and doodles of a young animal diarist. Information is presented in smartly written, bite-sized nuggets, combined with scribbles, torn-out photos, comic strips and incidental finds, such as footprints, eggs, pieces of vegetation, and a series of fact cards on other species that the diarist meets. Offers a fantastic opportunity to encourage an active developing imagination to live and survive in the animal's world, as well as developing both reading and writing skills. Readers find out all about where the T-Rex lived and what they ate. Meet his family and the other dis who lived nearby -- some are weird, but others are very tasty! The Animal Diaries series are personal accounts written by young animal diarists. Sometimes funny, often scary, these firsthand stories are highly entertaining, giving readers an intriguing insight into the life of each animal.Animal Diaries includes: Tyransaurus Rex (978-1-60992-255-9) Spring 2014Spider (978-1-60992-252-8) Spring 2014Penguin (978-1-60992-502-4) Spring 2014Lion (978-1-60992-615-1) Spring 2014
