Noisy Dinosaurs - Book Review


Like most children his age, J is intrigued by dinosaurs at the moment. He doesn’t know the different types or that they lived millions of years ago and are now extinct. He does however, love to play with his toy dinos and pretend that they eat everyone up!

Now I am no palaeontologist. There are only 2 dinosaurs I am aware of – the T-rex and the triceratops. So I do not trust my knowledge base to discuss dinosaur varieties with my son or answer the multitude of questions that crop up. I would rather source a good book to help me with the job.

This is the reason why I was so pleased when asked to review Noisy Dinosaurs by Little Tiger Press. Noisy Dinosaurs is just that. It is a touch and feel book about dinosaurs with the added benefit of sound effects. 


Noisy Dinosaurs by Little Tiger Press - Book Review

It talks about some of the more popular types of dinosaurs and introduces a couple of facts about each variety. There are lots of realistic illustrations to accompany the write-up. And a textured pattern on every page, a different one for each dino, that makes a noise when pressed.

Now, this is by no means an encyclopaedic entry on dinos. But the target audience is 3-5 years old and the book amply caters to that age group. The sound effects definitely add to the fun.

That, and new words like ‘diplodocus’ and ‘stegosaurus’, which are, at the moment, being treated like tongue twisters by J. He does love emulating the dino growls and grunts though. And has decided that the pterodactyl is his favourite. Perhaps because it can fly.

Check out how we got on with our first reading of Nosiy Dinosaurs:



Overall, I think this is a good book for younger children, especially if they are just starting out on the whole Jurassic journey. The novelty of dino howls is certain to keep them amused.
