Amazon Review

Dinosaur Roar! understands perfectly the infinite appeal of dinosaurs for little children and the result is a delightful book for pre-schoolers, with 24 pages of big, bold, friendly dinosaur pictures with just enough smattering of roaring to keep the excitement bubbling.

Words are kept to a minimum, but Dinosaur Roar! cleverly teaches many adjectives and comparatives as it introduces each new dinosaur: "dinosaur clean and dinosaur slimy".

Children adore this book and will want it read again and again.

Also available as a board book. Age 12 months - 3 years. Victoria MacKenzie END --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


A word book - but so much more. This wonderful board book introduces the concepts of opposites and its use of rhyme and rhythm really helps children to develop into excited readers. --Wendy Cooling - Booktrust

Dinosaur Roar has wonderful large, animated illustrations. The water colour detail and bright colours are so enticing. The simple text rolls off of your tongue and is a joy to read again and again. My six year old practices her penmanship by copying the text in her note book. It is a favorite in our home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hugely enjoyable 16 Sep 2005
This is a great book - tremendous fun and already a firm favourite with both my sons (4 and 1).
It consists of 24 pages (well really 12 double pages) of wonderful, highly stylised but still quite realistic dinosaurs. The text is simple and sparse but very effective, utilising opposites and rhyme. For example, stretching over four pages, the book contains the text Dinosaur Sweet, Dinosaur Grumpy, Dinosaur Spiky and Dinosaur Lumpy.
Very good fun and highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dinosaur adore 30 Nov 2002
Not enough children's authors consider the parents' sanity when writing books - after all it is we who must read the stories to our kids, often ad nauseam. "Dinosaur Roar" is a book I can read over and over to my pre-school kids and I marvel at its simplicity and readability. Okay, it's quite short which is always a bonus, but the language is brilliant. My son not only grasped opposites from an early age, but also quite complex vocabulary. You can imbue the meaning of the words by your tone, and "Dinosaur slimy" is a personal favourite page. We have since invested in "Dinosaur Stomp" and "Ten Terrible Dinosaurs", and the illustrations also bring great pleasure to us all. Thanks to the authors.

5.0 out of 5 stars My 14-month old adores this book! 13 Jan 2000
Format:Board book
My young son (14-months) just adores this book. He can't read yet, of course, but he just turns the pages and is delighted by the brightly-coloured pictures. Every day, at some point, he will come up to me waving Dinosaur Roar in the air and when I say, 'shall I read this to you' his face just lights up. It's a great little book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic book for small kids. 29 Nov 2006
Format:Board book
My 22 month old son loves this book, and I love reading it to him. The words are simple and easy to understand, and the pictures are so beautifully evocative that it's easy for even very young kids to understand the differences between the different types of dinosaurs. It's also a great book for making up your own actions, voices and other noises. It's not a long book, and doesn't take long to read, except that you can expect to linger on each page as your child explores the various characters and descriptions to their full.

A lovely book, and one that I highly recommend to anyone with children around 2 years old.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Learning 12 Mar 2009
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
My daughter loves this book. The dinosaurs are fun to look at, and the book helps her learn about opposites, ie slow/fast, clean/slimy. It is a book we read together and it is so simple that she is now reading part of it to me. I would recommend this to parents of pre-school children.

5.0 out of 5 stars children love the rhythm of the vocabulary 2 April 2001
By A Customer
Dinosaur Roar has become a firm favourite at our pre school.Requested time and time again the rhythm of the vocabulary soon has the children hooked and chanting along with the adult reader. The gloriously drawn illustrations encourage comment and observation. An excellent book for sharing with the under fives and one the individual child enjoys re telling to themselves.

Format:Board book
I just love this book. It's a classic case of the kind of book a parent buys, supposedly for his child, but actually for himself - the pictures of dinosaurs throughout it are gorgeously impressive - yet my eighteen-month-old son also loves it (which I suppose is just as well.)
I can't abide dinosaur books for kids that make the animals "cute" (you know, that whole Barney The Purple Dinosaur syndrome). Dinosaur Roar somehow avoids the pitfalls. Yes, the animals are drawn in a cartoonish style, and yes, they are brightly coloured; and yet they somehow have some real dignity, presence and power to them. They look enough like the real thing that my son instantly recocnised the dinosaurs on Jurassic Park when I showed him a bit of the video! (Yes, I know that the JP dinosaurs aren't "the real thing", but hey ...)
