Title: The Truth About Dinosaurs
Author: Guido Van Genechten
Release Date: August, 2018
I have three children, two of which are old enough to be interested in books (6 and 3). We have dozens of children’s books in our home and many of those books are about dinosaurs. Our children love to learn about animals and processes and we purchade books that help them to make those connections.
What I really like about this book is that it uses humor. The main character is a modern chicken and he ia telling the story of his ancestors (the dinosaurs) and how they’re all connected. Using a family photo album to show all the connections, children can learn how dinosaurs evolved into modern-day animals.
The photo album used in this story is filled with colorful illustrations that are cartoon-like, but realistic enough that any child who is familiar with different dinosaur types would still be able to identify them.
I would definitely recommend this book as it provides a different presentstion in dinosaurs and their genetic connections that I have not seen in other books of its kind.
