The ABC Book of Dinosaurs


About the Book

This simple board book uses rhythmic language and beautiful colour illustrations to introduce toddlers to a range of dinosaurs, from the smallest to the tallest, the fastest to the slowest. 2-5 years. Dinosaurs hatch, dinosaurs grow, dinosaurs roar and dinosaurs munch! Especially for the young, this book explores the fascinating world of Dinosaurs. A new title in the best-selling 'ABC Book of...' series. 2 -5 years. Review from '[this] is a sturdy board book introducing dinosaurs to small children. the text is sparing and the illustrations gentle. Size comparisons are demonstrated very clearly in illustrations where the text indicates 'small' and 'tall' etc. Accurate names are used, but so too are descriptors like 'spiky tail' for the Kentrosaurus and 'three sharp horns for triceratops. the narrative text is rhyming, and different font sizes are used to help differentiate between the narrative text and labels and the like. Illustrations are pastel coloured with plenty of white space to allow close examination of each of these remarkable creatures. Dinosaurs continue to entrance generation after generation of young children. the ABC Book of Dinosaurs is a new title for the very young in a series that includes the beautiful 'Animals'. the ABC Book of Dinosaurs offers accurate information in a very simple style without overwhelming the illustrations or 'dumbing down'. Danny Snell's illustrations have smiling faces...even the big-toothed tyrannosaurus Rex appears almost friendly. A beautiful book. Recommended for toddlers and dinosaur fans.'
