Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I love dinosaurs, ever have since I was a little kid. Any books, magazines, tv shows, films, comics, cartoons, whatever I could find about dinosaurs I was all over it. So, I was a little excited to see how my 21 month old boy would react to his new book, and the results were slightly disappointing.
First off the artwork is great and I like the idea of adding a thin layer of scaly substance to each dinosaur, my little one seemed to enjoy the new sensation of feeling each picture as we turned the pages.
The only problem for me is the lack of a story, something to engage the young observer. I read lots of books to my son and it's the ones with a story that grab his attention the most. Even at his young age he understands how each page leads to the next and looks forward to his favourite parts. With this book it's very much a short list of different animals but with nothing connecting them. Even a daft tale would be better than nothing at all.

Hopefully he'll grow to like it more and I'll introduce other dinosaur books as he gets older. I'll say again I really like the artwork.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I once again enlisted the reviewing skills of my 2 and a bit year old nephew for this one. He's going through a Dino-mad phase at the minute so he seemed like the perfect candidate to give me his opinion.

First off what I liked about it - colourful illustrations, a rhyming couplet on each page introducing the name of the dinosaur on the page (proper names mind you, we're talking 'Icthyosaurus' here, not 'Bob the dinosaur'), and a little quiz at the end. There's also the encouragement for audience participation, and the reader(s) are asked to roar at each new dinosaur we meet. Which obviously, is lots of fun!

I wasn't so fussed about the much lauded texturised scaly picture doo-dads, but The Nephew was a little bit entranced by it and seemed to like scratching his fingers across it. I'm not sure how long the stuck on scaly effect stuff is going to last, but I'm hoping it's been kid-proofed! He's pretty advanced for a Two year old (even if this proud Auntie does say so herself), and he can already identify a lot of dinosaurs, so this book was pretty much pitched perfectly for him. There were enough that he recognised, but also some new ones to learn, and it didn't patronise him (see above comments re: Bob the dinosaur). The quiz at the end was popular as a kind of 'guess who?' game and he seemed to thoroughly enjoy the book. So much so that he decided to forgoe us reading his all time fave 'The Naughty Bus' and had us read this one again!

One word of warning though, due to the levels of interaction with the roaring etc, this is probably more of a daytime book than a bedtime calmer. So don't read it to the little 'un before putting them to bed if you're the one who is going to be babysitting!

I loved this book so much. The rhyming text was flowing, the colours and pictures were perfect for young ones and the texture added to the dinosaurs were a brilliant idea. I love interactive books.

I tested this book on my 3 year old neighour and he loved the texture of the book. At the end, there is a game to play on remembering what the different dinosours were etc.

A great book for little ones.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
and goes on a little journey to say hello to some other dinosaur types in this super book from Ian Whybrow.

Appealing paperback covers open to 18 high quality pages, in the popular 2-page spread format.
Superb illustrations throughout, from Tim Warnes, as always.

From the back cover:-

'Are you ready with your roars?
Let's say hello to the dinosaurs!...
.....Swish! Kaaark! Roar!'

And it certainly was very NOISY, at the local tots' meeting this dreary Bank Holiday weekend, when I introduced this NEW book!
It was a HUGE hit!

The majority of the text is laid out in rhyming couplet style which further adds to the atmosphere of the 'read-out-loud' scenario.
However, it proves a REAL test for the narrator - I had to practice the names of the dinosaurs a number of times before I could read them out with any real confidence!
But as I tripped over my Ichthyosaur, and my Pterodactyl...... the youngest of children seemed to have little trouble with the names rolling off their tongues, chuckling as they helped an adult in distress!

The quieter guests were intrigued by the rough texturing effect this book also offers.

Example of text:-

'What a long way from your tail to your nose!
You're Diplodocus, I suppose!
Hello Diplodocus!
Chomp, chomp, chomp!......'

This interesting book ends with a double page spread of all the animals featured in a simple memory game, giving young listeners/readers the chance to answer, based on the information contained within, e.g.:-

'Now we'll play a little game.
I'll ask a question and you say the name!

Who's the longest dinosaur in this book?
Which dinosaur has a fan on his back?.....

My little boy loved this book in which a baby T Rex meets his different dinosaur friends before returning to his mum. Each page shows a different dinosaur which is coated in a shimmery textured finish. The picture are beautifully drawn, are bright and kept the attention of a normally squirmy one year old. I particularly liked the way that the proper names for each dinosaur were used, which means that the book will have longevity. At the end of the book there is a 'test' where the dinosaurs are pictured and you're asked to name the dinosaur.

I'm really pleased with the book and would recommend it to others.
