" We like these fun alphabet books for young children (my older ones liked them too) that introduce you to all different creatures. Perfect living books for science. " said.

" Not the most original dinosaur drawings but a good ABC book for boys " said.

" Liked how he added the different extinction theories and other info good for young children to know, like we don't know what colors dinosaurs are. " said.

"The Dinosaur Alphabet Book, by Jerry Pallotta is in the genre of Informational Texts. It is recommended for ages 5 years or older. This book is beautiful and filled great picture that appeal to young children. It has all these pictures of different dinosaurs and their names with descriptions to go with them. Some of the dinosaur names are Ankylosaurus to Zephyrosaurus' so for all the letters in the alphabet, there's a dinosaur with facts about them. What stood out to me the most In this book was how difficult some of the dinosaur names are to pronounce." said.

"We loved this one... my six year old and I. He was able to read most of the text without a problem, but he's an early reader. (However, some people in my house expressed skepticism that some of the theories about the extinction of the dinosaurs were still current. So if you have a dinosaur fiend in your family, this may be an exercise in nitpicking.)

The drawings were excellent, and I appreciated the notation that no one really knows what color the dinosaurs were, and that sometimes we only have one or two bones to support the theory about what the dinosaur looked like. I also enjoyed the inclusion of Asian dinosaurs (neatly covering the intial letters that are unusual in English).
" said.

" I remember when I first came upon this author and it was since of my elementary school. We had an assembly where the author was invited and ever since he told me there was a Julia butterfly I have been hooked with him.

The book writing is simple, large letters and easy for any child to read, especially with very young beginners. Unlike some of his other books this one is definitely geared towards an older audience since the dinosaurs (and some reptiles) cover species adults didn't learn about in school while there is no included pronunciation guide for some really stranger sounding ones.

The other thing that will catch the reader's attention is the beautiful detailed artwork, which is described further in the book as being fanciful since we just don't know. Otherwise the coloring of the subjects in this book could very well be true since they are beautiful yet well-blended in colors.

The author's well-known interactive reading style continues in this book. It asks the reader to answer a question, goes over what might be an oops such as including a non-dinosaur and then making a suggestion to replace it with a dinosaur. In the end the author also includes the comment that maybe the reader may be able to find another dinosaur of their own to join the known finds.

What gave an extra bonus to me is within the fun and yet barely noticeable learning while you read was the author added various known hypothesis' on how the dinosaurs die. Altogether it is definitely a fun book to get started on dinosaurs.

Definitely a literary gem!

" Great for any child that loves dinosaurs. My daughter and I had fun reading it and we both learned a few things to boot. " said.
