Beginning Reader Review of Danny and the Dinosaur Go to Camp by Syd Hoff

Read For: Early Reader Challenge
Synopsis: "Danny's going to camp––and he's taking the dinosaur! First introduced in 1958 with Danny and the Dinosaur and the recent stars of Happy Birthday, Danny and the Dinosaur, this popular pair is together again in an adventure sure to please beginning readers and happy campers alike. Children's Choices for 1997."

My Review: This one seemed to be a little more advanced for a Level 1 book but as I have mentioned before, the ones published years ago seem to expect more of young readers. That said the dinosaur going to camp adds a fun element to keep kids interested in this longer story. It may also help easy any worries about a first time going to camp, meeting new friends, or sleeping in a new place.
My Rating: As I have found with older books it was a little advanced but it might be fun for a kid going to camp. It was a middle of the road book for me and I am not sure Munchkin will enjoy it. I give it a rating of Three Paws.
