Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 043957675X, Hardcover)It seems that kids are programmed to love dinosaurs. Is the appeal that these wild-looking reptiles seem imaginary, like dragons and unicorns, but they are (well, were) actually real? Whatever the source of the extinct creature's mysterious magnetism, this pop-up, touch-and-feel, lift-the-flap dino-centric version of Scholastic's "My First Jumbo Book..." series (My First Jumbo Book of Colors, My First Jumbo Book of Shapes, etc.) will only encourage young dinophiles.
The sturdy, colorful, cartoonish book has only five double-page spreads total, but four of the spreads illustrate and identify six-to-seven different kinds of dinosaurs. Children can feel the bumpy scales of the barapasaurus (pronunciation guide included beneath each name), lure the ornitholestes out of its ferny hiding place, ease the maiasaura from its egg, or force the coelophysis to engage in some mildly aerobic exercise. On the last spread, in the shadow of a looming pop-up T-rex, kids are challenged to identify five dinosaurs from their skeletons and lift the flaps for the answers. Parents and educators seeking a meatier introduction to dinosaurs might want to look to DK's A Big Book of Dinosaurs: A First Book for Young Children, as this interactive novelty book has no descriptive text at all.
