It’s all about design—almost. Robert Sabuda’s collaboration with Matthew Reinhart contains a lot of basic facts about dinosaurs, but it’s the three-dimensional pictures that make it a truly distinctive dinosaur book. In addition to the large dinosaur that emerges with the turn of each page, each two-page spread includes one to three smaller book-within-a-book sections, with additional pop-ups and more information. Sabuda and Reinhart also write with a great deal of humor, labeling a section on the Jurassic period, for example, “Is It Getting Warm in Here?” and showing a modern day chicken sitting on a dinosaur egg to show scale. (Ages 5–10)
