The Terrific Dinosaur Book
Children’s Non Fiction
Published by DK Children
Age range: 3+
The Terrific Book of Dinosaurs is a rather fabulous educational book for children who, like my son really love dinosaurs. We bought it for his birthday last month, he turned 4, and he absolutely loves it. While it is a factual book, all of the information is delivered in a fun and interactive way. To up the cool factor the book even roars!
The first couple of pages have lots of pictures of dinosaurs where you can life the flaps and see lots of fun facts. As a relative dinosaur novice myself (my son now knows more dino names than I do), I actually found this pretty enjoyable and interesting. I also really appreciated the phonetic spellings of some of the dinosaur names too!
The illustrations are great and all of he different flaps and configurations of the pages, really make the book come to life.
Then there are pages where you can make the dinosaurs move. Here you can move the spinosaurus’ jaw and tail.
Or make the Pteranodon’s dive into the sea for fish.
The grand finale is a rather fabulous pop up T-rex that my son likes to make me repeatedly pop up and has serious wow factor. When I saw these pages, I just knew I needed to buy it.
A really fantastic factual, but imaginative children’s book, that I can not recommend enough for dino loving boys and girls.
Buy the book on Amazon.
