Oh Say Can You Say Di-no-saur, by Bonnie Worth, finds the Cat in the Hat once again taking Dick and Sally on an adventure. He takes them from the formation of fossils all the way up to viewing fossils in his own museum, while sharing information about dinosaurs in enjoyable rhymes. Phonetic pronunciations of dinosaur names are provided, along with non-rhyming text boxes with facts about dinosaurs. Oh Say Can You Say Di-no-saur is a fun book and would definitely entice even a reluctant reader to read, while learning scientific facts as they do.
This would be a great book to use while doing a study of fossils and/or dinosaurs with 1st and 2nd graders. It has plenty of level two and three words to help increase students' vocabularies and presents them in a manner that helps with retention and comprehension. There is also an Accelerated Reader test for this book.
