Update: the day after receiving we took it to preschool for reading time with little kids that this book is supposed to be made for. Now several of the pages have came out of the binding and I've had to glue and tape them back in. I would think it would be better made for this age group. Just be forewarned. I did take off a star because of this.
Update: a few months later the pages had to be glued back on other occasions with normal use. It is a good book and maybe it's just a problem with our book but it is not holding up well. We've never had any other books, especially new ones, start coming apart like this.
As a parent reading the book, I also love how they put the phonetic translation of the names. It only takes a few times sounding it out to learn how to say some of the names.
Ive honestly hidden the book for a few weeks because I was tired of reading him 100 dinosaurs out loud, but thats a testament to how nice this book is for a kid who is really interested in learning lots about dinosaurs.
Only suggestion should they ever do another addition is to add Velociraptor in as lots of kids love the standard Velocirapotor or even Utahraptor.
However- the binding just fell apart about a month after we bought it. It looks like the glue just did not stick to the pages so we have pages falling out all over. It is NOT because of misuse. In fact, my son cherishes this book and asks me to "put it up high" after each reading. HE doesn't share it with his siblings without me there to hold the book. Unfortunately I missed the window for returning by 2 days.... Too bad. We may just let him pick a different Dino book to replace it.
This book has a lot of room to help grow with my child. Right now he loves the pictures and the names, and especially learning what each dinosaur eats. I expect that soon he'll be into the unique attributes of each different dinosaur. Great gift!
