Free (NookTablet/iTunes) Digger the Dinosaur [Children's Picture Book]
Digger the Dinosaur, written by Rebecca Kai Dotlich with illustrations by Gynux, is a picture book in the My First I Can Read series for younger children, free courtesy of publisher HarperCollins.
This is some sort of multimedia thing which will require a NookColor, NookTablet, or iDevice to run the Nook for Kids or iBooks app.
For bonus educational fun with the kiddies, discuss with them exactly what kind of dinosaur Digger is meant to represent, and whether his pal Stego could really have acted as a facultative biped or if instead the modifications made to adapt thyreophoran dinosaurs to carrying all that body armour (and the thagomizer, named for the late Thag Simmons) around would have precluded that by making them too top-heavy to walk on their hind legs while carrying armsfuls of bones.
Currently free @ B&N and iTunes (available to Canadians). Thanks to the Free NookBook Summary blog for featuring this one, and they have a nicely-maintained set of all the current B&N freebies in the sidebar of their site if you think you might have missed something.
Welcome to the world of beginning readers starring Digger the Dinosaur!
Digger wants to go out and play, but he still hasn't cleaned his room. The race is on to tidy up-and with Digger in a rush, things might get a little topsy-turvy!

Thanks. Pity it won't work with the Nook app.
