Review: Excavate! Dinosaurs by Jon Tennant

The ultimate gift for dinosaur-loving kids ages 7 and up! With fun text and colorful illustrations, paleontologist Jon Tennant explains the anatomy, habits, and diet of 12 dinosaurs from the Cretaceous, Jurassic, and Triassic eras and then provides pop-out pieces of their skeletons for kids to assemble into stand-up paper models. However, the pieces are mixed up! Before the puzzles can be completed, kids must apply their new knowledge about the dinosaurs to figure out which pieces go together. Kids will love the challenge of sorting out which bones belong to which dinosaur -- just like real paleontologists do!

We received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.

K loves dinosaurs. He can pretty much name all the dinosaurs there are along with if they are meat eaters or plant eaters.
With this story we learned a bit more about dinosaurs and the time periods and the fun part about this is that K could put together his own dinosaurs. He had to learn how to do them. He had to learn about the dinosaurs first before he could just put them together, which I thought was a neat idea as it helps builds a child's ability to think. Now the time periods some of them were hard to pronounce for this momma which K had to help me. The pictures are nice and colorful.
Would I buy this book of course! Especially for kids that like dinosaurs.
