About the book:
"Get ready to board the Dinosaur Train and meet some new friends! Buddy, the adorable preschooler Tyrannosaurus Rex, and this adoptive Pteranodon family are always on the move. Today, they are going to Volcano Valley. Along the way, the train is making stops at the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous stations to make dozens of dinosaur discoveries. With more than 40 flaps to lift, kids will want to explore Buddy’s world again and again!"
This was our first reading experience with Dinosaur Train and it was thoroughly enjoyed. The names of the dinosaurs were like tongue twisters for my 3 yr old as he tried hard to pronounce them. There is also the easy and fun part of lifting the flaps to take a peek at what is under the flaps. The part that my son really liked was the page with the volcanoes and lava. He understood what happens during an volcanic eruption and he also mentioned that the rocks under the earth should stop fighting and share some space with each other. The world through the eyes of a child! I found it a great tool to teach a pre-schooler about science and also learn new words along the journey.Mommy learned some dinosaur names too!
