Dino Block

Dinosaur lovers, rejoice! Christopher Franceschelli and Peskimo have teamed up to create an adorably illustrated and extremely informative dinosaur book, Dino Block. Throughout the book, comparisons are made between dinosaurs and animals or objects that we have today. The first page shows something with which we’re familiar, like a goose: “I have a neck like a goose.” When you turn the page, you see a picture of a dinosaur with a goose-like neck: “I am a coelophysis. (SEE-low-FYE-sis)” Each featured dinosaur is followed by a pronunciation key. So, if you’re like me and tend to butcher the name of pretty much every dinosaur besides stegosaurus, you’ll finally be able to teach your children the correct pronunciation! You’re welcome. J
