What did you like about the book? In the Mesozoic Era, dinosaurs roamed the Earth. Readers will follow a pterodactyl through the fascinating pop-up pages and learn about some of the most common and well-known dinosaurs of the time. The illustrations and lively, interactive pop-ups are enjoyable and eye-catching. Teaching about the most common dinosaurs in simple language that also engages critical thinking made this an active read. Wrapping up all the assorted dino facts, the last page contains a pop-up of an asteroid and an explanation of what became of these interesting creatures.
