{My thoughts} – This is a fun little book all about the T. Rex. It is a nice little board book that allows children the option to touch and feel as the book as being read to them. The images are realistic, which means the child is seeing them for what they are assumed to have looked like back in the day when they were roaming the world.

This book is much more realistic then what my daughter prefers. She is more into the cute cartoon like dinosaurs. However, she really did enjoy looking at the pictures within the book and pointing to things waiting for me to tell her what stuff was. I really enjoy when we can add new words to her ever increasing vocabulary and this book helped with that.

I do think that this book has a bit more information then a three year-old can handle, but it is a fun book to look through and let your child point at things. I look forward to exploring more books from this series in the very near future.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
