My Review:

This book has all of the quality and factual information that one can expect from all of National Geographic's Books. My son really enjoyed seeing it personalized with his name and picture. He loves dinosaurs as a four-year-old, and he loves more sophisticated texts about them. The fact that this book personally asks him questions by name made him get creative with his answers, more so than if I just read a question that was addressed to a generic reader.

The dinosaurs featured were portrayed in simple, yet very interesting ways with beautiful illustrations that capture the imagination. For example - a dinosaur that had something in common with the mythical unicorn? Sign every kid you know up for that! My son took a stick and held it to his head on our next walk claiming to be the Tsinosaurus!

This is a book I definitely recommend. It is a beautiful gift for any science-minded kid, one that they will come back to again and again.
