Have your kids been through the “dinosaur phase” yet? You know, the time when kids, especially young boys in my experience, become very enamored with all things dinosaurs. And by very enamored, I mean every library book, cartoon, toy, piece of clothing, room decor, field trip, and playtime have to do with dinosaurs. With our kids, this was right after trucks and before Legos.
I still have my son’s collection of 42 dinosaur books and most of his dinosaur action figures, although some are missing appendages or heads. Most of his dinosaur books are filled with dinosaur facts, like size, diet, and where they lived. He even has a few that teach how to draw dinosaurs.
Recently, I was introduced to a unique book that sparked our interest, even though my kids are past the peak dinosaur years. Scanorama: Dinosaurs from Silver Dolphin Books gives amazing insight to the life of dinosaurs and went beyond basic facts. It was actually an interactive book. I was really impressed by the book, but I’m just a mom. I needed to put it to the real test.
An Eleven Year Old’s Dinosaurs Book Review
I gave the book to my son who even though he is past the peak dinosaur phase still holds an interests and a breadth of knowledge of dinosaurs and dinosaur books. Later that day, I found him fully engrossed in the book, which thrilled me. He hasn’t been that interested in books lately. When he finally noticed I was in the room, I asked him what he thought about Scanorama: Dinosaurs.
- This is not your usual book.
- It’s more creative than other books.
- The artwork catches the eye.
- There is not just reading. There is action.
- The “x-ray” pages are awesome!
Since he is an active 11 year old boy, he often has too much energy to sit and just read. His body needs to move. His mind wanders. He found the images and graphics captured his attention. Scanorama: Dinosaurs. also, allows him to engage his mind and his body by using interactive features such as flaps and a cool x-ray slider.
