When a stegosaurus, a pterodactyl, and a triceratops all show up at Uncle Otto's car lot, he doesn't have a clue how to help them. After all, he's never sold a car to a dinosaur before. Luckily, Ava and Mickey--two kids with a lot of dino knowledge--are there to help pair each customer with the perfect vehicle. But here comes the T. Rex, and he wants to buy a car too! And he's surprisingly hard to please... So what kind of car does a T. Rex drive? A microcar? A convertible? A minivan? You'll just have to read to find out!
I absolutely love what Mark Lee and Brian Biggs created with book. The illustrations, paired with this engaging and fun story, bring the story to life. I found myself looking through all of the details on each page, adding to the curiosity the readers are feeling.
I am going to use it as an introduction to dinosaurs and tie in research by having students use Capstone's PebbleGo to learn more about the T. Rex and other dinosaurs from the story.
Won't they love this app? I can just see them bring the school and world around them to life with dinosaurs. We could even make their very own story from the pictures they take, putting a twist on this book and the title.
I can't wait to do this project with our students!
You will find the book here.
