Encyclopedia Prehistorica Pop-Up Books


by Robert Sabuda & Matthew Reinhart

Encyclopedia Prehistorica is hands- down one of the most eye-catching books on dinosaurs for kids. Each double page spread highlights a different species of dinosaur, each one literally leaping from the page thanks to Sabuda's masterful, fantastic, three-dimensional paper sculptures.

In addition to the pop-up, each spread also includes a brief paragraph or two about the dinosaur being highlighted, plus smaller foldout mini-books and pop-ups with additional information.

In truth, however, the star of the show is the awe- inspiring paper sculptures. If you know a dinosaur nut, this is DEFINITELY the book to get! 

This book was an ALA Notable Book & New York Times Best Illustrated Book!
