Explore the prehistoric world of dinosaurs in this fun addition to the acclaimed Abrams Block Book series!
“I stretch high like the ladder on a fire truck. I am a Brachiosaurus.” Using comparisons to familiar objects in a young child’s life, this is a unique and exciting new way to learn about dinosaurs! From the incredibly heavy Argentinosaurus to the goose-necked Coelophysis to the super-quick Eoraptor to everyone’s favorite T. rex, Dinoblock features denizens from the Jurassic, Triassic, and Cretaceous periods. And don’t worry—there is a pronunciation guide to help children AND adults say those long, scientific names.
Like other books in the Block Book series such as Alphablock, Cityblock, Countablock, and BuildablockDinoblock features die-cut shapes on every spread and has durable, interactive pages that fold out, perfect for little hands. A grand finale spread unfolds to nearly 21 inches wide, revealing a wonderful round-up of all the dinosaurs mentioned. With bright, animated, retro-inspired artwork by Peski Studio, this is a must-have book for the young paleontologist in your family.
