Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Apatosaurus to Zupaysaurus, the 26 dinosaur friends in this oversized board book will enchant preschoolers and help them learn their ABCs. Developed in conjunction with paleontologists at the American Museum of Natural History, it features extra-large letters; bright, detailed illustrations of the dinos (many on display in the museum); information about each creature; and an embossed tactile cover that feels like bumpy dinosaur skin!

Review:

"This oversize ABC board book, created in collaboration with the American Museum of Natural History, features bold primary colors and realistic digital depictions of dinosaurs. Each dinosaur appears in mid-motion: a baryonyx, with tiny ridges running from head to tail, catches a fish in its mouth; an oviraptor with a hammerhead crouches over its nest; and a velociraptor's plumed tail sweeps underneath a blue letter V. An appended alphabetical listing of each dinosaur offers speculation and trivia: 'The dangerous horns on Pentaceratops's head were used to ward off attack.' A good pick for junior dino-maniacs. Ages 2 — 5. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

From egg-laying Aphids to the striped Zebra Longwing Butterfly, these colorful creatures will fascinate preschoolers. Developed together with experts at the American Museum of Natural History, ABC Insects introduces beetles, butterflies, flies, moths, and more, all straight from the famed museum's displays. With its extra-large letters, eye-catching photos, and fun facts on every page, this board book is a sure kid pleaser!
