HOW IT WORKS: DINOSAUR is a fun die-cut board book that examines Tyrannosaurus Rex. The book features a layered cut-out of the dinosaur with different parts discussed on each page, such as the brain, teeth, and skeleton. Each page spread features a few sentences about T. rexes with fun facts throughout. A mouse paleontologist appears on each page to present the facts.

What I loved: This is a really fun and educational look at dinosaurs, great for toddlers and preschoolers. The cut-out feature is quite clever, building up a dinosaur through all its parts. Bright colors and key illustrations as well as the mouse paleontologist add some extra fun and make this a charming read. Children will love learning basic facts about T. Rexes in small, digestible sentences on each page.

The short amount of text and board book format will work well for toddlers and preschoolers, particularly those who love all things dinosaur. The book does mention that T. Rexes eat other dinosaurs, such as triceratops, but it does not show any (just has the triceratops saying "uh-oh").

Final verdict: HOW IT WORKS: DINOSAUR is an entertaining and colorful read that is sure to charm toddlers and preschoolers who want to learn more about Tyrannosaurus Rex.
