Reviews - What do customers think about Backpack Books: 1001 Facts About Dinosaurs (Backpack Books)?
fun and informative Dec 29, 2003
This book entrances us, and our 3-year old son (who will listen as long my voice holds out!) It is filled with photographs of fossils, excellent illustrations, and real information. It has none of the silliness and sloppy thinking that most children's books think is acceptable. Instead, it has fascinating, accurate information - organized by topics that are small enough to fit within a 3-year old's attention span, but interesting and educational for me, too. Todlers and adults will get as much information as they can grasp, and all enjoy and learn from the great photos and illustrations.
For young and old Dec 1, 2002
