Is there such a thing as “too much dinosaur”? After 12 years, you would think that I’ve gotten used to dinosaurs being a thing. However, this isn’t the case. With the boys being six years apart in age, I get to relive everything all over again. Six years later!
Back in August, I received the first of many new Dinosaur books for review; Dinosaur Detective’s: Search and Find Rescue Mission. A few weeks later, I received the next book; Life on Earth: Dinosaurs: With 100 Questions and 70 Lift-Flaps. The boys have barely been able to put the book down. I think it is an addiction or something for them to study and memorize everything they can about dinosaurs!
Life on Earth: Dinosaurs: With 100 Questions and 70 Lift-Flaps
When did the dinosaurs live? How did they hunt? And why is the T-Rex the scariest dinosaur? Find out the answer to these and many more questions in this fun fact-filled lift the flap book. Discover the secrets of the prehistoric era with 100 questions and answers about dinosaurs and more than 70 lift-flaps to be opened! With stunning, detailed illustrations throughout, this is the perfect introduction to the world of dinosaurs for young children.
Now, I will say that the title is a little deceiving. There aren’t 100 questions and 70 flaps in this book. How do I know? Well, my 12-year-old had to point this out to me! Does a five or six-year-old care about this? Nope, they sure don’t. In fact, all Xavier cared about while reading the book was the answers to all the questions and learning more about dinosaurs.
The Life on Earth: Dinosaurs: With 100 Questions and 70 Lift-Flaps is for children ages 5-6 and is a hardcover book. Retail value is $12.99 and can be purchased at Amazon.com, Barns and Noble, and other online retailers. Recommended by Quarto Knows.
