Little Kids First BIG Book Of Dinosaurs by Catherine D. Hughes & Franco Tempesta

Dinosaur research has come a long way since my primary school days when I knew the name of about 4 dinos which were T.rex, Triceratops, Stegosaurus, and Brachiosaurus.

This informative book is filled with colourful lifelike dino art and contains the details of 52 awesome dinosaurs.

Separated into 4 sections – small, big, giant and gigantic dinosaurs – the book is easy to navigate for kids with just enough text in large font. Interesting details are highlighted clearly in different colours and tabs.

The fact tab tells you the period it lived – Triassic, Jurassic or Cretaceous, food it ate and its size relative to a human. At the bottom of each page, the dino names are split into syllables making pronunciation a breeze.

At the end of the book, find two pages of parent tips with dinosaur activities to do with your child and a useful world map mapping which continents the dinosaur fossils of the dinos featured in this book were found. A glossary and index ends this perfect book for any paleontologist in training.

A few of our favourite dinosaurs from this book include Archaeopteryx – who was a dinosaur and a bird, Cryolophosaurus – who was found on the Antarctic continent, Therizinosaurus – a plant eater with awesomely large claws and Argentinosaurus – the largest known animal ever to roam the earth!

Suggested age: Read aloud to a dinosaur enthusiast of any age! Read by self 6+. Recommended for a confident reader.
