The fascination young readers have with dinosaurs doesn't seem to be ebbing; hence, books that feature these prehistoric creatures keep coming.

This pop-up book contains eight of the more familiar types of dinosaurs. They range from a triceratops, velociraptor and stegosaurus to a huge brachiosaurus and fierce tyrannosaurus.

Besides the pop-up rendition of each creature which greets the reader as he or she opens each section of the book, there is important information provided about each dinosaur. There's a guide to help with the correct pronunciation of the animal's name followed by an explanation of what that name means.

The child will also discover where the critter once lived. What it liked to eat, and a list of interesting facts about the dinosaur's habits and physical features is also included.

Pop up books can sometimes be rather delicate and therefore not stand up to constant use, but this volume is sturdy enough that, with a little care, it should last a while.
