Reader Reviews

Good book, my daughter, 4-year, loves it!
My daughter really loves this book, I have read it many times to her and even try to play Sid, Ross, Rex, Olley & Spike with her. Of course she play Sid, me Rex and her toys play the other three. We are from China, so this book is quite good for children all around the globe.

Amazing!! Sid is better than TV
I bought this book last week and not only my 3 years old boy asks me to read it many times during the day but tonight he preferred Sid and his friends rather than Peppa Pig!!! Illustrations are fantastic, funny and characters are so cute! Descriptions are very detailed also for little foreign readers. Marina & Matteo from Italy

The Dinosaur Who Lost his Roar
My 5 year old daughter enjoyed reading this as she likes dinosaurs. Our local library has just got some of these Usborne First Reading books in - they seem appealing to new readers.
