Roar: A Dinosaur Tour is just what it says, a picture book about various dinosaurs and some of their habits. The information is related in a one-line rhyme per page, with the dinosaur named and portrayed in bright colors. The dinosaurs are shown in habitats that are appropriate to the time and location.
This is a very simple book with few facts and little detail in the images and is therefore a great book for very young archaeologists in the making. It's great for little readers because dinosaurs are a popular topic for preschoolers and primary-aged children. The text is also very simple, so this is a good book to give beginning readers to practice their skills.
