Matching books to beginning readers can sometimes be tricky – even more so for boys than for girls who are presented with a wide range of options; from cute animals, princesses, fairies and a wide range of other mythical creatures.

Dino Hunter, D-Bot Squad Book 1 by Mac Park & James Hart

D-Bot Squad hits the mark, appealing to the boys by combining dinosaurs with computer game technology and fast paced action.

For me, the added bonus of the funky librarian who made a spectacular dino-cave in the corner was a touch I couldn’t help but mention when I showed Dino Hunter to a year one class.

My bad.

Now they want a dino-cave in their library too …
