+ pronunciation help and “catchphrase” for each dinosaur
- not bound well - book is falling apart, we’ve had it 2 weeks and I’ve already sellotaped back 20 pages! The pages just drop out.
- not much information on each dinosaur and information repeats for similar looking dinos.
-Text/information seems to be an afterthought, not cohesive
- no flying reptile / dinosaurs. there are feathered birdlike ones but no pterodactyl/pterosaur
-no marine reptile / dinosaurs like plesiosaurus
Disappointed- will not get any more from this series. I’m surprised at all the positive reviews, I guess they reviewed on first impression only
Revised - I’ve added one star because it’s actually great for putting pages up as posters on bedroom walls. My son is so happy!
This book comes off the book shelf every day. They love sitting together and looking at the pictures. I've read it with them so many times that they know loads of the dinos names now, and makes me so proud to hear them saying the hard dino names.
Lucky on each page there is a break down of how to pronounce each name, making it easy for you to practice it before telling your kids the name. eg. Ree-oh-hah-sore-us for Riojasaurus.
It's got lots of little facts for each dino, and a little to scale diagram showing the size difference between each particular dino compared to a 10 year old boy (they assume the little figure is Andy from Andy's Dinosaur Adventures so that's cute).
This book has delighted my toddlers and I can see it's going to keep them reading for years.
