Le t's Look at Dinosaurs: A Flip-the-Flap Book
by Frances Barry
Candlewick Press, $12.99
This pop-up book is filled with fun illustrations of a dozen dinosaurs, with each spread featuring an element of surprise. Children also will find out interesting facts about each dinosaur. For example, with Diplodocus, the author wonders how long the dinosaur was. Unfold the tail flap, then unfold the neck flap and while you gaze at the great big creature, you'll read, "She is longer than ten elephants standing end to end." Additional fun facts are on the inside covers at the front and back of the book. It's a great choice for any kid curious about these long-gone creatures.
