It’s a dinosaur kind of learning in our home lately. Especially since we’ve been receiving all these great Dinosaur books to post about. The boys are really starting to like that I’ve started blogging again and receiving items to review.
Last month, I posted about the Life on Earth: Dinosaurs: With 100 Questions and 70 Lift-flaps!, it’s time for a new book. This time we’re going to introduce you to Atlas of Dinosaur Adventures: Step Into a Prehistoric World.
Atlas of Dinosaur Adventures
From the team behind the best-selling Atlas of Adventures comes this prehistoric journey of discovery. You’ll get to embark on over thirty dinosaur adventures that will take you all around the world! Travel back in time to lock horns with a triceratops, stalk prey with a T-Rex, and learn to fly with a baby Pteranodon. With hundreds of things to spot and facts to learn, this is the biggest Atlas adventure yet!
Atlas of Dinosaur Adventures is recommended for children ages 8-12 and is a 96-page hardcover book. You’d think that my boys couldn’t learn anything new about dinosaurs. Especially with the previous books, I’ve posted about as well as all the other Dinosaur books and movies the boys have watched. However, Thaddeus seemed to enjoy this book and said that he learned new things. Recommended by Quarto Knows.
I love how the book is laid out. The mapping is excellent, and you can see all the different dinosaurs and facts for each area of the world. There are various maps in the book, showing the way the world was thought to be during the Triassic World, the Jurassic World, the Cretaceous World, and the world today. Each set of pages talk about a specific dinosaur or dinosaurs and also shows you where in the world they’ve been known to live. The illustrations are fantastic and really teach the kids what it would have been like during the dinosaur times.
