A young boy befriends a gigantic green crocodragonosaur named Oliver. There’s only one problem. Oliver eats everything – and I do mean everything. First he eats his way through the boy’s toys and even his lunch. The boy follows the hungry monster on an eating binge through the neighborhood. He even tries to get Oliver to stop eating and go back to his cave but it doesn’t work. Oliver must be stopped before he destroys the whole town. Chipping’s animated artwork puts a friendly face on an otherwise scary monster. Kids who love dinosaurs will get a real kick out Oliver, the lovable crocodragonosaur. ~ Copyright (c) 2013 by Peggy Tibbetts


knowonder thumb*The knowonder! Literacy Program

At knowonder!, our goal is to get kids excited about reading and encourage parents to share in and foster this enthusiasm.  Every month, knowonder! publishes a new short story collection; each one full of adventure, magic, talking animals, wacky aliens, and much–much more!  We choose read aloud stories because they fully engage kids’ minds and imaginations.  Of course, we absolutely love picture books too – and plan to publish many fun ones from our huge selection of stories.  But read aloud stories are the core components of our literacy program.  The collections also include reading comprehension questions after each story, spaces for kids to add their own art, and other enjoyable extras.

Research shows that if you read with your child for just 20 minutes, every day, you’ll be giving them a strong literacy foundation and setting them up for a better future.  Our knowonder! short story collections are an excellent tool to make this reading time fun and easy since they contain a new story for every day of the month AND start at just $2.99 in digital format and $4.95 in print!
