Customer Rating: 5 out of 5 Fascinating!

I bought this as a gift for my soon-to-be seven-year-old grandchild as his passion right now is dinosaurs. His ten year old cousin was entranced by it. Spent at least an hour while the other children were playing with new toys reading passages of the book and studying the pictures.

Customer Rating: 5 out of 5 DINO NERD LOVES IT

My 9-year-old is a self-proclaimed DINO NERD and he actually reads dinosaur books. Cover to cover. I almost never know what he is talking about because I know like four dinosaurs, and just by name. I'm remedial with the dinosaur facts. He is genius and it is thanks to books like this one which he received on Christmas and LOVES it. So he has a plan to visit the Smithsonian in real life one day. THANK YOU! From the proud mama of a DINO NERD.
