Please check back each Tuesday for a brand new giveaway!

DINOSAUR offers young readers an in-depth, gripping journey back to a time when these prehistoric creatures ruled the Earth! Each stunning spread features different fascinating species and provides the facts and meticulously researched details that dinosaur fans want to know.

Complete with beautiful illustrations and a design that captures the feel of an old, weathered paleontologist’s journal, DINOSAUR will captivate the imagination of dinosaur buffs and curious dino experts in-the-making.

The book also includes a tri-fold timeline outlining the key historic ages, mini booklets with little known dinosaur facts, and a giant foldout poster that includes various life-size dino footprints (and our relative mini-scale human size), this is the definitive dinosaur book for budding paleontologists as well as fans of every age.

    We have been hitting the library a lot lately to pick up books on swimming for our 4 year old. She just started lessons and LOVES it. She also is VERY into dinosaurs so this would be a great addition to her bookcase.

    My daughter is still little and we mostly read simple board books. She loves all books with animals or sparkly fairies!

    My son has just started to read by himself. I still read “the hard stories” and he reads the easy readers. But we recently got a large pack of Berenstein Bear books and we read them together (he reading w/ me helping). I love the lessons in the BB books. Very nice of you to give away such a cool collection of Dino books!

    I have been reading some of Sesame Street Beginning books to my 18 month old son. He especially loves the one about bath time. : ) I also read Pat the Bunny and other books that include textures. These dinosaur books will be a wonderful start to his collection of books and a lifetime love of reading and learning!
