Praise For Dinosaurs

Praise for this series:

"...the formula doesn't begin to describe the wonder of opening up each page into a satisfyingly enormous illustration in the master designer /illustrator's typically pleasing shapes...and wildly contrasting colors. Young children will have a blast, over and over again, opening the pages, looking at the pictures, and identifying the animals." --School Library Journal
