My son’s love for dinosaurs has only just begun. He was not very interested until my mom brought over a (huge) tub of model dinosaurs and sat on the ground with him and a big dinosaur book. They played for at least two hours. That is how he is, if John is engaged in active play, along with a book, he will be hooked (and obsessed) for hours. I absolutely love providing my son with as many books as possible, and here, appropriate hands-on tools, to engage active play!
Usborne Books provides the best quality of books for my son. They are sturdy, don’t fall apart with rough play, and they are, most importantly age-appropriate. There are dinosaur books for every age and genre. Realistic illustrations versus more cartoonish ones — all depending on your child’s interest level!
