Dinosaurs on the Move, A Book Review


"Make prehistoric times come to life with extraordinary dinosaurs that once roamed the earth! Cut-and-color or pre-colored action figures really move as you bring Tyrannosaurus Rex, Allosaurus, Triceratops, Stegasaurus, Ankylosaurus, Brachiosaurus and others to life.

Move their jaws, clash their teeth, and make their powerful legs run as you act out your own dinosaur battles-or make up your own stories about these mighty creatures that ruled the planet.

Use this creative learning tool to introduce and reinforce the wonder of natural history and inspire a love of paleontology with hands-on activities for children ages 6-12."



Dinosaurs on the Move, by Cathy Diez-Luckie, was a super fun book for us to review. A loved coloring the dinosaurs and expressed some serious creativity(she said if people weren't around then how do we know what color the dinos were...great question, and maybe they were pink and purple:) D loved chasing A's pteranodon with the pre-colored brachiosaurus we put together, and amazingly the wood-free card stock held up to his rough toddler play. A lot of help was required for my little ones to do this project, but they are a little younger than the recommended age of 6-12. The dinosaurs from this book proved to be great for expressive play and A was especially interested in reading the dino fact cards for each one. She loved finding the places on the map where the remains have been found.
