Following in the footsteps of the groundbreaking Alphablock and Countablock, Dinoblock features thick pages cut into the shapes of dinosaurs! Readers will be introduced to more than 20 different kinds of dinos via die-cuts of their unique silhouettes and the illuminating comparisons to familiar things from a young child’s world. I stretch high like the ladder on a fire truck. I am a Brachiosaurus. As children touch the pages, they have a chance to guess the dinosaur and appreciate the uniqueness of its silhouette. A final gatefold delivers a roundup of all the dinos included. This hands-on approach, delivered in colorful pages by hip British design team Peskimo, makes for an immersive, age-appropriate introduction to a favorite topic of childhood.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good information, design needs work The book is lovely, jam-packed with dinosaurs and one basic fact about each. When you lift a glap to reveal the answer to the clue it's supposed to be a pre-historic scene that works with the bit of modern day scenery that remains exposed, but on several pages, there are bits of dinosaur peeking out or buildings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter loves this series of books!!! The impeccable design and thought put into these series of books makes it a staple on our bookshelves. The fact that I can't say most of the words in this book but provides a pronunciation guide makes it all the more valuable!
