Digging Up Dinosaurs – Book Review
If you have ever wondered how and where dinosaur fossils are found and thought about wanting to have a go at excavating your very own dinosaur, then this book (an ideal dinosaur book for kids), is for you.
Combining information about the Age of Reptiles, the hard book cover folds out into a one metre wide sized booklet that takes young dinosaur fans through the step-by-step process of conducting their own dinosaur dig. With a little guidebook included entitled “The Fossil Finders Handbook”, this very well crafted and colourful publication explains how palaeontologists unlock secrets from the past.
The book has been designed so that it can be folded outwards to provide a 3-D Tyrannosaurus skeleton that can be hung on a bedroom wall as an informative dinosaur poster. The two main dinosaurs featured are Tyrannosaurus rex and Triceratops and information and lots of facts are provided about these two late Cretaceous dinosaurs in particular.
It is a colourful and informative publication with a unique style and layout which will appeal to children aged 5-6 years and upwards.
