Review: Dinosauritis

When Darwin was three years old, he had his first encounter with a toy dinosaur. Once he discovered dinosaurs there was no stopping him. He couldn't stop thinking about them and learning about them. Darwin had dinosauritis!

With large pages, gorgeous bright illustrations and enough facts to keep even the most advanced case of preschooler dinosauritis under control, Dinosauritis is a wonderful way to indulge any young dinosaur fans in your home.

Bestselling author and illustrator of the Whose.. series Jeanette Rowe has created the ideal introduction to dinosaurs for young readers. Dinosauritis offers everything a young dinosaur enthusiast could want in a book - fun facts, dinosaur jokes, a dinosauritis board game and two pages of special dinosaur cards that you can cut out to create your own game of dinosaur snap! It even includes a phonetic guide to all those tricky dinosaur names.

Four additional books in the series were published in mid-2012 focusing on specific dinosaurs - Bruce the Brachiosaurus, Tip the Triceratops, Tracy the Pterodactyl and Rex the Tyrannosaurus.

This is the perfect gift for any dinosaur-loving toddlers and preschoolers you know.
