Book review: Dinosaurs 3D

*Disclosure: I received a copy of this book to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. 

My kids are really big fans of 3D books. On the rare occasions when Ethan stops running around and instead sits quietly, he's often found in his bed with 3D glasses perched on his nose, paging through one of his 3D books.  They're such a fun way for him to enjoy books!  We recently received a new addition to his 3D library, a book from Time for Kids called Dinosaurs 3D. Here's a bit about it from a press release that I received:

This 80-page book of exciting 3D images shows dinosaurs as you've never seen them. The book is packed with state-of-the art CGI artwork for kids ages 8 and up. From plant eaters to armored dinosaurs, the creatures seem to leap, crawl, stomp, and stampede off the pages and into your living room. The 3D photos are so eye-poppingly real, you'll think you've gone back in time!

No other dinosaur book comes close to delivering the impact of Dinosaurs 3D.  Dinosaur lovers young and old will thrill to this marvelous 3D menagerie and the surprising and little-known facts and educational information about each creature and how they compare to today's animals.  Dinosaurs 3D digs through the past to explore and teach families all about meat-eaters, plant-eaters, armored, plated and horned dinosaurs, dinosaur extinction, and how they lived.
This book has been a really cool way for all of us to learn more about dinos. There are so many different dinosaurs than I ever knew existed and so many interesting facts to learn about them!  I love that this book comes with two sets of 3D glasses- that cuts down on the fighting when both kids want to look at the book at the same time, or gives me the opportunity to read along with Ethan.

If there's a dinosaur fan in your family, be sure to take a look at this book!
