Cap’n Rex and Ally-Saurus: Book Review

Cap’n Rex and Ally-Saurus: Book Review

With Christmas just around the corner, I have started to think about gifts.  One of my go-to gift ideas are books.  I don’t think you can ever go wrong with them.  There is nothing more lovely on a cold and wet day, than to snuggle up with your little ones and a blanket to read.  It is a moment I always enjoyed as a child and now even more so as a parent.

This month we have been very lucky to review two brilliant, dinosaur inspired children’s books; Ally-saurus & the very bossy monster and Cap’n Rex & his clever crew.

Ally-saurus & the very bossy monster

This fabulous book written by Richard Torrey is beautifully illustrated.  It follows the story of some children, and as you can see in the pictures, it has a really interesting way of giving you a glimpse into their imagination.  With cartoon like drawings showing you what they ‘see’.

The book follows Ally, who loves to play at dinosaurs.  She loves to stomp, roar, dance and laugh.  But, this is threatened to be ruined when Maddie moves in next door.  Maddie wants to be in charge and starts to order the children around, making up rules.  The book sees Ally stand up to Maddie, supporting her friends.

This a great book and just like the book we reviewed last month, has a great moral.  I love any book that helps to guide the boys in the right direction and this book certainly fits the bill.

Cap’n Rex & his clever crew

The boys absolutely loved this book.  The combination of dinosaurs and pirates was just irresistible! The graphics were gripping and the absolute best bit for them was the guide at the back of the book, teaching them how to talk like pirates.

The book sees the daring pirates on a quest for…. you guessed it … treasure.  They have to overcome some challenges along the way, including a giant shark and an erupting volcano.  L loves volcanos so this was his favourite part.

This is a great book, with vibrant illustrations.  The text is fun to read and this is definitely a new favourite on the boys bookshelf!
