I bought this a couple of months ago for my 5 year old and he really loves the book, he must have looked at every page a thousand times! Very interesting, lots of 'fun' facts for kids, but also more serious stuff such as how fossils are formed and found, along with some great pictures - e.g, comparing how big dinosaurs were to things they see today. Very engaging and educational. Would certainly recommended it for kids from around 4 to 7.

I bought this for my five year-old boy, to cater for his sudden fascination with dinosaurs. This is a great book, packed with just about the right balance of information and pictures. I would say it would be suitable for those a few years older also. In fact, I have been revisiting my own dinosaur knowledge whilst reading the pages to him. Most dinosaur varieties are covered, with a decent explanation of the various periods involved. The explanations are straightforward enough for you to be able to read it yourself and then explain an answer to any awkward questions from your children!!

Bought this for my three year old grandsons birthday, my daughter loved it, my grandson loved it. I watched a video of them going through the book, its amazing. My daughter said the only thing that could possibly make it better is maybe explaining how to pronounce some of the dinosaur names, other than that she thinks its brilliant. I did notice my older grandson was also very interested in it, pointing out the different dinosaurs. I would definitely recommend this book

This 128-page book is a colourfully-illustrated and informative volume that looks at the wide range of dinosaurs that once inhabited our planet.

It is incredibly well-illustrated with photographs and other illustrations - mainly photo-realistic artwork. It is extremely informative and easy to read. It is intended for younger readers, but older ones (and adults) will also find it interesting and informative. It covers quite a wide range of subjects, as well as individual dinosaur types, and will serve very well, as its title suggests, as a ‘first’ encyclopaedia for children.

It is divided into chapters, with a series of two-page sections within each chapter illustrating a particular group of creatures, with a couple of closing subjects included, such as fossils and the end of the dinosaurs’ world.

The Contents are -
P004: Age of the Dinosaurs
P012: Let’s Look at Dinosaurs
P032: Triassic Dinosaurs
P048: Jurassic Dinosaurs
P066: Cretaceous Dinosaurs
P090: Other Forms of Life
P100: Fossils
P112: End of the Dinosaurs

P122: Reference section (Glossary & Index)

My 8 year old read it in an evening. The Dinosaur obsessed will love this book. Packed with facts and presented in a way that facilitates easy absorption of the material, you will quickly find your child quoting facts you never knew and making you feel quite inadequate for not knowing. That is, if you are not a dinosaur aficionado yourself
