50 Dinosaur Tales by Sabrina Ricci with Garret Kruger #Review #Facts #BlogTour

 

50 Dinosaur Tales: And 108 More Discoveries From the Golden Age of Dinos

Gualicho takes a bite out of the ornithopod’s back as it runs away from her, causing it to stumble and fall. She jumps on top of the body and rips open its neck with her teeth. The ornithopod becomes still and limp.

Satisfied, Gualicho begins to feast. But, after only two bites, she senses something is wrong. She lifts her head and sees a Mapusaurus making its way toward her.”

About 50 Dinosaur Tales

Blending fiction with fact, 50 Dinosaur Tales imagines the way 50 newly described dinosaurs from the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous lived in their natural habitats.

Also included is a list of fun facts for each dinosaur story, and facts about 108 additional dinosaurs.

If you want to hear more about new dinosaurs as soon as they are discovered, listen to the weekly podcast I Know Dino.

My Review

If you have any child who is really interested in Dinosaurs and loves reading about their strange names as well as finding out other facts and stories about them, this is a fantastic way to do so. The book has lots of short stories which imagine what life was like for recently identified dinosaurs, creating a mini adventure for each one and including other species they may have encountered. There are lots of fun facts for many more than the 50 stars of the Dinosaur tales.

My daughter is now grown up but I have to say that as children she and one of her best childhood friends would have loved this book! I suspect it will appeal to older children who are able readers and will be one of those books they’ll return to time and time again, reading the stories and studying the facts shared. I found the stories intriguing reads and they’re short, taking only a few pages for each one, so ideal for readers to read whenever time permits.

I requested and was gifted an ecopy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it and finding much of it a fascinating way to learn more about dinosaurs.

    This sounds like a great book for school libraries. My son was also a huge dinosaur afficienado and probably would have loved this book.

      I totally agree – it really would be something lots of the children would enjoy ‘dipping’ into and the stories are so short they could easily read them in a short time.
