my first Pop-Up Dinosaurs - Review & Giveaway on July 13, 2019

At my house we are 1/3 of the way through Summer Break - and so far it has been a wonderful Summer Break where I have been blessed to spend a fair amount of time with my sweet grandsons. We are working on reading books this Summer, so I asked Candlewick Press if they might send me a few books to review, and they did. Today I am very happy to let you know about one of these books - and announce a giveaway for it as well.

My grandsons enjoy pop-up books. They are also "fans" of dinosaurs; so a book which combines dinos and pop-ups . . . what could be better! Allow me to share with you - my first Pop-Up Dinosaurs.

my first Pop-Up Dinosaurs
Author/Illustrator - Owen Davey
Paper Engineer - David Hawcock
Publisher - Candlewick Studio
Ages - 3-7

Favorite Features -
  • Illustrations for 15 dinosaurs complete with pop-ups
  • Breaks down the way to pronounce each dino name
  • Colorful illustrations
  • Fun pop-ups
Candlewick Studio says; "Stylish artwork by award winner Owen Davey makes this 3-D introduction to dinosaurs a standout. Watch long-extinct creatures spring to life in a striking first pop-up book for budding paleontologists. Showcased are fifteen dinosaurs and prehistoric reptiles, from Ankylosaurus to Velociraptor, each one accompanied by its name and pronunciation. At once simple and sophisticated, Owen Davey’s striking pop-ups, with their geometric patterns of spiky scales, dramatic splotches, and dotted feathers, are sure to mesmerize dinosaur aficionados of all ages."

My grandsons enjoyed the pop-up dinos in my first Pop-Up Dinosaurs; although they would also have enjoyed more info about the dinos. The book is fun for young ones with the combo of dinos and pop-ups - of course the T-Rex is my grandsons' favorite.

As I mentioned above, Candlewick is making another copy of my first Pop-Up Dinosaurs available for me to give away (USA only) If you are over the age of 18 and would like to enter the drawing for my first Pop-Up Dinosaurs, which will be on July 13, 2019, please comment below to share who you would give this book to and which dino you think would be their favorite - my youngest grandson will receive this book and the T-Rex is definitely his favorite.
