Become a dinosaur expert
This early science story encourages children to play the role of scientist and introduces early science concepts and tools (such as maps, brushes, and hammers) used by paleontologists. Children will have fun interacting with charts and tables that compare dinosaurs' characteristics, habitats, and much more! The learning is reinforced with an activity that demonstrates how modern animals share characteristics with prehistoric creatures like dinosaurs. For example, in this activity LeapReader prompts children to touch the animal on the page that acts like a triceratops. The correct answer is rhinoceros. At the back of the book, children will discover an interactive word list that provides definitions for more than ten challenging words in the story including allosaurus, observe, and museum.
Reinforce the learning
Reinforce the learning fun with 15 two-sided interactive playing cards. With a tap of the LeapReader pen, children can get more in-depth facts about each dinosaur, from their sizes and what they ate to when they lived and where they roamed. Children can use what they learn from the playing cards to prepare for a wild round of the Dinosaur Jungle Survivor Game. Collector cards can be conveniently stored on the inside of the book.
