Stylish artwork by award winner Owen Davey makes this 3-D introduction to dinosaurs a standout. Watch long-extinct creatures spring to life in a striking first pop-up book for budding paleontologists. Showcased are fifteen dinosaurs and prehistoric reptiles, from Ankylosaurus to Velociraptor, each one accompanied by its name and pronunciation. At once simple and sophisticated, Owen Davey’s striking pop-ups, with their geometric patterns of spiky scales, dramatic splotches, and dotted feathers, are sure to mesmerize dinosaur aficionados of all ages.
This is a SUPER cool pop-up book. There’s one dinosaur per page and the design and illustration is just phenomenal, so this would be perfect for any dinosaur lover. The paper has this cool, semi-shiny effect and is pretty sturdy for a paper pop-up book, which is always a plus.
This first book of dinosaurs is fabulous because of the fun pop-ups and the phonetic spelling of each dinosaur name. This book keep sit simple with just the illustrated pop-ups and the name (and pronunciation), so this board book is sure to capture a little one’s attention and not make a parent frustrated by trying to pronounce all of the names on their own.
