Presenting cutting-edge science to the youngest readers, The Day the Dinosaurs Died is a mesmerizing account of the end of the dinosaurs.
The dinosaurs were the biggest, most powerful animals that ever walked the earth. Now they are all gone, extinct. Bold illustrations and a dramatic text re-create the devastation sixty-five million years ago when a giant asteroid slammed into Earth, triggering global disasters and leading to massive worldwide extinctions.
The Day the Dinosaurs Died is a Level Two I Can Read, geared for kids who read on their own but still need a little help. Whether shared at home or in a classroom, the engaging stories, longer sentences, and language play of Level Two books are proven to help kids take their next steps toward reading success.
