Bloomsbury Activity Book, 2016.ISBN: 9781408867532
(Age: 4-6). This brightly coloured activity book welcomes the young child into the world of dinosaurs. Emiliano Migliardo's comical dinosaurs are portrayed in a wacky array of situations, ballooning, jogging clothed in a shirt and shorts, snorkelling in the swamp, skateboarding or piloting a prop plane. Each spread introduces a different type of dinosaur - long-necked, feathered, frozen and flying. The bold landscapes are overpopulated with herds of dinosaurs busy with both animal and human activities. Ten objects to discover are shown in outlined circles at the top of the page. This is a fun discovery book similar in style to the I Spy series and the popular Where's Wally books.
Simple dinosaur facts are included on the final page. Seek and Find Dinosaurs will keep the young fans engaged, and it is just right for developing language, perception and thinking skills.
