Here's the opportunity to walk in their shoes, so-to-speak, and learn a little more about the lives of various dinosaurs. The tracks they left behind offer clues to the movement and behavior of these ancient creatures.

'Look at the footprints the creatures made.
What do the marks help prove?
The shape of the feet help show what it might eat;
The spacing, how it moved.

I'm not sure the rhyme the author uses to present the narrative is a real plus. It may turn off older readers, although younger ones probably won't mind that much.

In a school setting this little picture book can be used to launch a discussion about dinosaurs. The learning activities at the back will engage the child in discussing what has been read and the activities will help expand the topic as well.
