National Geographic Kids Ultimate Dinopedia, Second Edition


I'm a nonfiction geek and always jump at the chance to get a peek at new Nat Geo books. They recently sent me a package of their latest titles, and we pulled this one out of the box first.

Back in say 1993/94, my oldest son was practically a junior paleontologist. We read every dinosaur book we could get our hands on including whatever they had in the adult nonfiction section and I knew all the things about dinos. As you do when your kid is a "specialist" My younger kids were only passively interested and so although we are in the Field Museum quite a lot- there have been so many discoveries in the last twenty years. 

This colorful nonfiction title brings all the facts to light in a sciencey (auto correct does not like when I make up words like that) and kid-friendly way. I would categorize this book as a gift worthy resource. Dino-loving kids will love the full-color images, and there is just enough text on each page with easy to read sidebars that they can dig into learning about each species.

This is going to be part of a Nat Geo bundle that I'll be giving away in December!!
