The Book Snob Mom
Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

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 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.
