    My son and I love it. Send the audio to my surround audio system and you can imagine yourself in the middle of story. My son looks around wondering when the T-Rex is going to get him.

    Great!

    My 5 year old daughter LOVED this! She wanted to read it again and again. Very entertaining! I liked the fact that at the end gave more infomation on the t-rex, that it wasn't just a story but educational.

    More volume needed!

    My kids liked it alright but we could barely hear it and had the sound turned all the way up! Would have liked the text larger also.

    Volume please!

    I would have rated this 5 stars, except the volume is to low even when I have it at the highest setting. Can this be corrected?

    Disappointed

    This is so boring and such a disappointment! My 2 year old nephews love dinosaurs but this never caught their attention at all. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
