*Review* Dinosaur Book for Kids by Katie Henries-Meisner

Genre: Coloring Book - Ages 3-7 years
Published: September 1, 2020
Pages: 112

Color and learn fun facts about 25 of the greatest dinosaurs that ever lived!

Meet 25 of the world's most amazing dinosaurs! This learn-through-coloring book provides kids with hours of coloring fun and teaches them exciting facts about these prehistoric beasts at the same time.

Did you know that Triceratops had up to 800 teeth? Or that Dilophosaurus could run almost as fast as an Olympic runner? Here's what the dinosaurs looked like, how they protected themselves, how big they were, and so much more. Children will have fun coloring the dinosaurs, learning about them, and becoming dinosaur experts.

Dinosaur Book for Kids features:

  • Learning while having coloring fun! Kids will discover amazing facts for each dinosaur that they can share with family and friends.
  • 50 age-appropriate illustrations, perfect for little hands.
  • Name and pronunciation guide for every dinosaur, so kids can proudly (and accurately) show off what they know.

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley. This is my honest review.

Since I got my copy of this book through Netgalley, I do not get to enjoy coloring the pictures (at least not without buying a physical copy of the book). That makes me a little bit sad because it would be relaxing to color in this book. The pictures are big with just enough details to make them interesting so coloring them wouldn't require the amount of thought that adult coloring books do for me. They are definitely a great size for younger children to color. 

But the reason why getting this book on Netgalley wasn't completely ridiculous is that it also includes facts about the dinosaurs you're coloring. The facts are fairly short tidbits about the dinos that includes pronunciation guides. So your kiddos can learn a bit about their favorite extinct animals without boring them with too much information. 

Overall I give this book 4.86 out of 5 stars and really wish I'd have a physical copy so I could be coloring it right now. - Katie
