Dinopedia is an interactive iPad e-book app from National Geographic that grabs the reader from the outset with a moving and roaring image of Tyrannosaurus Rex on the title page. It has multiple and easy options for moving through the book, and the numerous dinosaurs found here are covered through great colour images (with descriptions of the scenes), statistics, paragraphs with further information with optional voice narration, fun facts, and in some cases, the bios include short computer-graphics videos.

Fortunately, the consultants are credited with short bios, and there is also a glossary. While I personally found the voice narration annoying, many young kids will enjoy the “cool” and dangerous factor of someone talking about each dinosaur as though he was doing a radio advertisement for a monster truck rally.

Recommended age range: 7-12

The Ultimate Dinopedia is organized by the periods that are well known to young enthusiasts: Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous. It includes every dinosaur ever discovered, and highlights 125 species that scientists know sufficiently to describe in rich detail. Special features include "How We Know What They Looked Like?", "Baby Dinosaurs," "Great Dinosaur Goofs," and much more. Every featured dino gets a fact box that delivers important information at a glance: scientific name, discoverer, place and date of discovery, length, habitat, diet, fossils, fun facts, and range map. This book provides—in fabulously illustrated, kid-friendly form—all the information an 8-year-old fact hound needs to lord that knowledge over parents and teachers! ( )
