Synopses & Reviews
We dare you to enter four alluring worlds of dinosaurs and interact with fun and mischievous intent. Readers can use nine press-out dinosaur pieces to help Tyrannosaurus rex chase hadrosaurs among the rocky cliffs of T.rex Valley and find the Maiasaura babies mummy among the trees of Maiasaura Forest. No dinosaur book would be complete without a head butt competition with the Triceratops beneath the fiery Triceratops Volcano or a chance to meet all the prehistoric residents of Diplodocus Lake. Field guide included to find answers to questions and track down footprints that appear across every scene.
"The four, full-spread pop-up scenes that make up this entertaining book are sandwiched between a narrow 'Field Guide,' which contains basic dinosaur facts (as well as images of their footprints, for matching purposes), and an envelope containing nine paper dinosaurs to play with. Each of the scenes, labeled 'T. Rex Valley,' 'Triceratops Volcano,' etc., asks playful questions that encourage investigation, such as 'Who is trying to eat the eggs?' An enjoyable interactive exploration. Ages 3 up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
