grandma's bookshelf - Dinosaur Shapes, Colors, Numbers & Opposites - Plus a Give-Away!

Around this grandma's house there are certain things which are "popular". These "things" include, super heroes, monsters, aliens, giant robot spiders and dinosaurs . . . can you tell my grandchildren are young boys?!!! So, when Sterling Children's Books gave me the opportunity to review four books where the main characters are dinosaurs, well, I was pretty sure they would be "hits" with my grandsons! Not only are the dinosaurs well liked, but I also appreciate how each book teaches the basics . . . one book focuses on shapes, another on colors, another on numbers and still one more on opposites!

Dinosaur Shapes
Dinosaur Colors
Dinosaur Numbers
Dinosaur Opposites
By - Paul Stickland
Publisher - Sterling Children's Books
Ages - 3-6

Favorite Features -
  • Excellent, colorful illustrations of lots and lots of different dinosaurs . . . children will love the illustrations in these books!
  • Each book teaches a topic - shapes, colors, numbers or opposites and makes learning about it's topic, fun!
  • Easy to read, these books will be fun, "first readers", too!
I love the bright, vivid colors in each of these books, along with the variety of dinosaurs . . . all of which combine to make four really fun dinosaur books! They are just "fun" to look at! Plus, each book teaches simple concepts for little ones . . . children will learn about shapes, colors, numbers and opposites. I am happy to see so many descriptive words in the text; sweet, grumpy, spiky, lumpy as well as non-typical shapes; ovals, diamonds and stars. Plus toddlers are sure to have fun finding the colors and counting dinosaurs - these dinosaur books make learning fun!

I'm very happy to say, not only did Sterling Children's Books send these four books for me to review, but they are making one additional set of them available for me to give away!

  1. My son loves dinosaurs (he is 26) and now his son (my grandson) is starting to be interested in dinosaurs. My favorite is Brontosaurus. It is hard for me to choose one color. I am that "kid" that has to use all 120 crayons in the crayon box. If I have to choose 1 though, I would say that I gravitate towards purple a lot. Thanks for the chance to win these books for my grandson!!! I follow on FB and e-mail.
