Overview

Young, eager paleontologists wanted. Apply within. We need YOUR expertise! So step inside The Dinosaur Museum, the book where kids get to act like paleontologists. This amazing volume gives readers a behind-the-scenes peek at a museum, with an interactive experience that evokes a visit to a natural history museum. Forget about waiting in long lines for hours. This interactive guide takes you on a room-by-room tour of the most fun-packed museum you can imagine. Learning about prehistoric monsters becomes a practical challenge to the scientist in every reader. Each room points to a range of interactive investigations that can be carried out in the dino-lab gatefold flap. You can open the specimen drawer filled with fossils, look at specimen slides through the microscope, and use a whole host of interactive features: a pop-up fossil finds map, a dinosaur time line, and a sliding chart that allows you to compare the size of dinosaurs with modern animals.

Dinosaur Museum is the ultimate holiday gift for every child who loves dinosaurs. This inspiring interactive book gives children the chance to experience the real science behind the study of one of the most exciting eras in the history of the Earth.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Eleanor Heldrich
This National Geographic pop-up book is fashioned to suggest a natural history study guide. The very first page, labeled "Dinosaur Lab" opens from the inside out to reveal information about "How to use this book," a flip-up scale chart, and a turning wheel that causes close-up pictures of dinosaur parts to roll by and accompanying information to appear in a slot below. This last feature is referred to in the text as the microscope. There are two pull-down tabs entitled Drawer 1 and Drawer 2 containing information about fossil bits. Following this, 10 double-page spreads of information and illustrations alternate with pop-up displays and lift-the-flaps, textures to touch and little booklets to read. All of the illustrated dinosaurs are identified as to type and era; and pronunciation guides are provided on yellow labels. The order in which the information is presented in the table of contents is: The Meat Eaters, The Plant Eaters, Gentle Giants, Small but Deadly, Suits of Armor, Flying Reptiles, Swimming Reptiles and The End of an Era. The final pages contain information about the three periods of dinosaurs and an index. This is a razzle-dazzle book of dinosaurs with what appears to be a dinosaur head coming out of a door on the book's front cover. Reviewer: Eleanor Heldrich

This is a one-time read book; perhaps better borrowed from the Library or a friend. Probably not ideal for children who are knowledgeable on the subject of dinosaurs.
