I am a parent of a child who loves dinosaurs. This book comes highly recommended. There are 52 different dinosaurs presented in the book, characterized by size; small, medium, large, and super. Each dinosaur comes with a full page color illustration, a brief description, and a small information chart showing its size, eating habits, and the time period in which it lived.

This book was clearly designed for younger kids, because it has large print, pronunciation guides for all the dinosaur names, and imagination style questions associated with each dinosaur, like "if you could have a pet dinosaur, what would you name it?" for the micropachycephalosaurus. But children pick up the names very quickly, and soon you will find that they can remember the names of all the dinosaurs in the book just by looking at the picture.

My favorite part of the book was the list of activities at the very end to continue your experience once you have finished looking over the book. The book has several suggestions that could be applied to varying ages and skill levels, from playing predator-prey, a hide and seek style game where you pretend to be dinosaurs, to the alphabet game, where you list each letter of the alphabet and try to find a dinosaur name to go with each one.

If you are looking for a dinosaur book for older kids, there is also the "National Geographic Kids First Book of Big Dinosaurs", not to be confused with this book for "Little" kids. In that book, they use a similar format, but have many more dinos and a lot more general information about dinosaur habits, but no activities page.

this book was ideal for my grandson, who is 3 years old. he knows now that all dinos are different and how to say their names. this book should carry him through his elementry years at school.

This book goes into just about the right amount of detail for ages 4-6 and without the unwanted gore that might be found. My son absolutely loved it and became part of good night ritual. The big print also got him interested in spelling. And we were really impressed when he said "micropachycephalosaurus" with ease!

This book is wonderful! I bought this for my niece for her upcoming 4th birthday. My 2 1/2 year old son currently has this book and every time she comes over to our house she is amazed with this book. It has great pictures and the best part it the pronunciation guide for parents! I hate trying to pronounce the names of dinosaurs and my son always wants to know the names. This book tells how big each was compared to humans and little facts about each dinosaur. Great beginning dinosaur book for kids.

This book was given to my three year old son as a gift. He is obsessed with learning about dinosaurs and the content and illustrations in this book are fantastic! We read it daily and he has most of the dinosaurs memorized in just the few short weeks we have owned it. He can now spout off all sorts of dinosaur facts to anyone willing to listen - it is an awesome addition to our home library.

However... after having the book for only 4 weeks the binding is starting to come apart... My son has been an avid reader (or rather, a lover of books as he doesn't read yet... but he frequently looks at books on his own) since he was very little and was taught how to handle books from a very young age. What I mean to say is that it isn't coming apart because a three year old has ravaged it... It has had the same amount of wear and tear as if an adult were reading it. Unfortunately I have had to tape a number of pages at the binding in hopes that they won't fall out. This is a favorite book at our house and I can only hope it holds up. I am shocked at such poor construction... I am not sure I would buy a new copy if the pages start falling out of this one only to have it (probably) happen again.

This book is a must have for little dino lovers. My four year old retains everything I read to him from this. Ask him the difference between a diplodocus and a brachiosaurus.... Or which dinosaur had long thumb spikes (Iguanadon) Beautiful images and an awesome little key that shows the size of the dino to scale of a human.
