Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My seven-year-old daughter and five-year-old son enjoyed this book very much. It is attractively designed, with brief, clear and interesting text about this always popular subject. The pictures are eye-catching and give the illustrations a great feeling of depth. In the Index there is a helpful guide to pronunciation.
You can read this book from beginning to end. Or there are different themed 'buttons' for readers to follow. These include Food and feeding, Science, Dinosaur lives and Nature. I didn't particularly find myself wanting to follow this approach, but no doubt it will give the book repeat value as children can follow a different route each time.
My wife read this book aloud to our children, which held their interest for the 30 minutes or so it took to finish it. The day after, my son asked to look at the book on his own. His verdict was, 'I really like the book. It is interesting. The dinosaurs look really exciting. It looked like there was blood on the Tyrannosaurus Rex, because it is a meat eater.'
I asked both my children if they enjoyed this book. They agreed that they did.
