                This book counts down various types of dinosaurs beginning at 10. The book provides an adjective to describe each dinosaur and illustrates each dinosaur.  At the end of the book Mr. Oldland provides a phonetic example of the name of each dinosaur. 



                This book provides an excellent format for a teacher to use to introduce backward counting. The colors are beautiful, the dinosaurs are well drawn and the text is can be easily explained.  The theme of dinosaurs is excellent because children love dinosaurs.

Would I purchase this Book?

                I would purchase this book to use as a teacher.
