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
