Plesiosaur

Ancient Animals: Plesiosaur
by Sarah L. Thomson (Author) and Andrew Plant (Illustrator)

Booktalk: Ninety million years ago, giant dinosaurs roamed the earth, pterosaurs flew through the air, and giant reptiles and fish hunted in the oceans. The area that is now Kansas was covered by water and one of its inhabitants was the plesiosaur–a reptile with an extremely long neck and a huge body.

This early reader about the ancient plesiosaur brings the prehistoric world of this ocean-dwelling animal to life, explaining how scientists think these reptiles lived, hunted, and became extinct. Back matter explores other reptiles both ancient and modern and provides additional print, visual, and web resources..

Waiting for Sophie

Waiting for Sophie
by Sarah Ellis (Author) and Carmen Mok (Illustrator)

Booktalk: Waiting is hard. Liam waited through half of kindergarten for his baby sister to be born. Then, when little Sophie finally comes home, he discovers she won’t be ready to play with him for a long, long time. As the months pass, everyone says that Liam is Sophie’s favourite. He is the best at making her laugh and burp, but laughing and burping are not enough for Liam. With the help of Nana-Downstairs, he designs and builds a Get Older Faster Machine. It doesn’t seem to work on Sophie, but maybe Sophie is not the only one doing some growing up.
