{My thoughts} – This book is more on the realistic side of the dinosaurs. It is all about terms and words that help your child understand more about the dinosaurs. If you have a child like mine that enjoys books your child will probably enjoy being able to point at the many pictures within the pages and wait for you to tell them what they all are. This is one of those kinds of books where there is endless opportunity for learning available for both you and your child!

As I stated the images are more realistic, so it might not really be the kind of book that your child enjoys unless they just really enjoy books and dinosaurs. My three year-old sat in my lap pointing at images over and over again for a good 30 minutes as I told her what everything was. Some of the words she’d tried to repeat others she more or less moved on from, but she’s at that age. I am just glad to have the one on one interaction with her, sharing something that we both enjoy!

I look forward to reading more books in this series in the future.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
