Travel Back Through Time to the Land of Dinosaurs is a book by Parragon in their Gold Stars series, meaning it is educational but fun, encouraging young ones to engage in learning, almost without realising it.
With over 100 full colour pages there is so much to learn and do in this action packed book and my 4yr old Mister B was eager to get started. One of his favourite activities in these type of books are mazes, and there were plenty of them in here to keep him occupied.
The pages contain a mixture of facts and activities, plenty to learn and do. What I really like about the facts and information in the book is that it is set out in numerous different ways encouraging interest rather than being paragraphs of information. For example to understand how big dinosaurs were, there are diagrams likening them to the size of buses. There are also things for children to do on the same pages as information, therefore I found that I could read out bits while Mister B enjoyed a bit of colouring or drawing but he also discussed the facts with me. He was rather amused to learn that a Diplodocus made the biggest dinosaur poo, due to the amount that it ate!!
What a fabulous book to use to occupy your child at the weekends or over the summer, knowing that they are having fun but learning at the same time.
All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and we received the book in order to write the review.
