First, in full disclosure, I am the Godfather/uncle to a handful of small children, but I do not have any of my own. I come from a family of librarians who give books as gifts- so I have a good idea of what children's books work and do not work, and what they can take as far as abuse goes. But that being said, I want to put that that caveat out there to help appropriately shade my review.
This is a board book- my only concern with the book is that the spine pops out while it is open. I imagine that an exuberant toddler may tear of the spine fairly quickly. But, that is half the fun of board books. They are meant to be enjoyed as a snack more than enjoyed as a literary masterpiece.
I like this book for several additional reasons. First, it rhymes, which is always nice for kids. It helps them memorize the story. Secondly, it has some progressive ideals that are good to expose children to early. It using female pronouns through the book- so the story of the dinosaurs is told through questions and answers: Does she X, or does she Y? No, she Z's. Etc.
It also features interracial parent's in one scene - you can see I have feature that picture with this review.
And it teaches good manners. The dinosaurs don't throw fits or tantrums or not share- instead they help out and say thanks.
It does all of this without making a point of it- so it normalizes all of these things early.
It is a great little story that I think the toddler will enjoy, as will his parents. I would recommend this as a gift for all the young dinosaur enthusiast in your life.

I got this for my 3 YO son on his birthday and have had the opportunity to read it to him at bedtime many times since then. It is a short book, but colorful and fun so it will hold their attention for the few minutes it takes to read them.
It also has the names of the dinosaurs to go over with the kids, and has lots of opportunities to talk about what color the dinosaurs are, do they have stripes / spots etc.
Get this for your younger children who like dinosaurs, I think you'll both enjoy it!
