Review:

Dinosaurium, curated by Chris Wormell and Lily Murray, is a spectacular exploration of all things dinosaur! This over-sized book is beautifully illustrated and designed. Children and adults are sure to be impressed with the detail and depth of information covered as the reader is taken on a “tour” of a dinosaur museum. While young readers will be intrigued by the ferocious illustrations, the print is small and complex, making it a difficult read for emerging or beginning readers. Older, or strong independent readers will be entertained for hours, as this book is packed full of information.

Dinosaurs remain popular with children of all ages and this fantastic book is sure to be read again and again. Highly recommended for children ages 6 and up.

5 big stars for this big adventure!


Thank you to the publisher for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
