Format: Board book
I stumbled upon this one on sale at one of those discount department store places. What a great find! Each page features one type of dinosaur- one for each letter of the alphabet, what time period it lived during (Triassic, Jurassic, Cretaceous), a pronunciation guide for its' name, a fact or two about the dinosaur, a symbol to determine if it was a plant eater or meat eater, and a map of the globe and where the dinosaur lived.It also teaches the terms sauropod, hadrosaur and theropod.

My favorite parts are the plant-eater and meat-eater symbols on each page. My 4 and 5 year old really seem to enjoy being able to distinguish something about the dinosaurs on their own since they are only beginning readers.

The only downsides for me were that the book doesn't teach the terms carnivore and herbivore but rather plant-eater and meat-eater. And if your children are not familiar with the Dinosaur Train characters they might be confused on the few pages that feature the name of a character on the show in addition to dinosaur facts.

However, that would not stop me from buying this again and I certainly recommend it. It's a fabulous book, very sturdy, colorful and informative. Probably best for the attention span of ages 3 and up if you're concerned about teaching. It's a bit busy and has a lot of words for the younger ones.

A great supplement to homeschool curriculum or just as a fun educational book.

My 4 year old daughter has been watching dinosaur train every day for almost 4 months now. So the book was a huge hit. It is a nice companion to the show, but might be difficult to understand or read if you don't watch the show. It was really exciting to watch her name some of the more obscure dinosaurs from sight. It is educational, well put together, and has great illustrations.

This book is a MUST-HAVE for any fan of the PBS kids show Dinosaur Train, or for any kiddo who loves dinosaurs. It has fun pictures of dinosaurs beginning with every letter of the alphabet. My 3 y/o reads it over and over and over; it is for sure in his top 5 favorite go-to books. He can "wow" all our family/friends with his knowledge of BIG dinosaur names!! :)

More than I expected, colors are bright perfect for the board book age. Really has 26 dinosaurs one for each letter of the alphabet. Phonetic dinosaur names with the normal spelling helps when I have no idea about these dinos. I do wish it had all dinosaurs that are in the dinosaur train. I have a feeling I will be reading this everytime I see my grandson who loves reading and loves dinosaurs.

My 3.5 year old LOVES Dinosaur Train on PBS. We save the most recent episodes on our TiVo and had to permanently save the 4 episodes that make up the Dinosaurs A to Z (Tiny's big idea!). My son has learned and remembered SO many dinosaur names from this show. He impresses everyone with his talk of the Pachycepholosaurus, for example. There is an adorable dinosaur A-Z song where they sing all the dino's names. It goes rather quickly, and with these long Dino names can be hard for the little ones to sing. As soon as I saw this book, I knew he had to have it. He now flips through it and follows the TV story at the same time. I've also seen him flipping through the book and singing the song to himself. Now, his 19 month old brother also reaches for this book often. Highly recommend as a companion to the show.

This book is the best! Great pictures and amazing info! My 20 month old grandson spends a surprising amount of time 'studying' the pictures and never lots it get too far away. Adults can learn a lot as each page gives information about every dinosaur featured. This book will offer years of enjoyment!

This has been a terrific tool to keep my four year old dinosaur lover interested in the alphabet. For those of you not familiar with Dinosaur Train, the illustrations are fun and cartoony- not realistic (and sometimes frightening for the little ones). Each individual page is dedicated to a specific dinosaur- explaining the time period, origin and a few factoids that are simple enough to keep it interesting but not overloading.
It's great in that it features the dinosaurs we are very familiar with in North America but also ones we might never have stumbled upon on our own, like the ZINGONGOSAURUS which he just talked about to his class. If your preschool or kindergarten kiddo likes dinosaurs, this is highly recommended!

My 4 year old is obsessed with Dinosaur Train. He loves this book and can tell me what each of the dinosaurs is and what they ate based on the pictures in the book. It's very sturdy and colorful. My 8 year old also likes to read the information in the book. My 4 year old loves the book and I'm glad I purchased it.
