My boys really enjoyed reading Bronto & the Pterodactyl Eggs and Bronto, Friend of Ceratops! They studied the illustrations and remained involved in the story lines. I like how the author incorporated a few challenging words that encourage vocabulary development in each book. I did feel like the stories ended a bit suddenly, but overall we were pleased and have read the books over and over already.
