Being a mom of two boys, I know the love boys have for the dinosaur. It isn’t just a phase they go through. It isn’t just some boys. It’s almost like it is a genetic thing that happens with all boys.
I didn’t believe my husband when he told me how much the boys would love dinosaurs. That is until they reached the age of playing with them, reading about them, drawing them, and even trying to teach mommy about them! It is like an obsession. Kind of like women with shoes, purses, or clothes; multiplied by about a bazillion!
Needless to say, when I received an email asking if I would be interested in reviewing the new books coming out this summer and fall that are dinosaur themed. The first book, Dinosaur Detective’s: Search and Find Rescue Mission, for preschoolers was the first to arrive.
Dinosaur Detective’s: Search and Find Rescue Mission
Jump aboard the red airplane with Dinosaur Detective and travel the world in search of lost animals. From the jungle to the stormy sea to outer space, test your spotting skills in this puzzle-packed tour of a dozen different destinations. Kids will love this mystery hide-and-seek spotting adventure with a flying dinosaur detective!
Xavier just happened to be in the room when I opened the package and his eyes lit up like it was Christmas. Within no time he was reading the pages and searching for the hidden items.
The Dinosaur Detective’s: Search and Find Rescue Mission is for children ages 5 and older and is a hardcover book. Retail value is $16.99 and can be purchased at Amazon.com, Barns and Noble, and other online retailers. Recommended by Quarto Knows.
