All aboard the Dinosaur Express by Timothy Knapman

Bloomsbury Publishing, 2015. ISBN 9781408849361 Highly recommended for young readers. All Aboard the Dinosaur Express is aimed at young readers - especially boys - who love trains and dinosaurs. It is full of bright images and descriptive language. As the train enters the station, the young dinosaurs feel excited as they see the Tyrannosaurus steam engine and wing shaped doors. They sit in huge, comfy seats and eat a crazy selection of treats. One dinosaur will be chosen to move to the steam engine and see the train in action. Who will it be? Parents will enjoy reading the story to their children and talking about all the action and items included in the pictures. Kylie Kempster
