Praise For Build a... T-rex

"...a ferociously fun book. Begin you journey back in time with a basic timeline detailing which dinosaurs lived when. Newsflash: The T-Rex did not live in the Jurassic period. They lived in the Late Cretaceous period! Next, readers flip the page to learn more exciting T-Rex facts and get to unearth their first pieces in the 3-D model. And, much to the delight of children, when the pieces are removed, the dinosaur skeleton is left behind. As the book progresses, more pieces are unearthed for your 3-D model, as well as fun dinosaur facts. I was shocked to learn that T-Rex’s probably didn’t roar: they might have hissed like a snake! By the end of the book you will have built a terrific 3-D model of a T-Rex, perfect for your shelf. Highly recommended." - Denise Mealy, for The Children’s Book Review


"Ljung’s graphics give the pages a fresh, contemporary look, and bones revealed when the model pieces are removed lend a sense of the dinosaur’s skeletal structure. It’s a nifty, hands-on introduction to a fan favorite dino." - Publisher's Weekly
