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!
