LET'S FIND THE DINOSAUR is a really fun lift-the-flap board book. T-Rex is hiding, and we must go look for him. Different dinosaurs are found along the way, featuring a pterodactyl, a diplodocus, and others. The pages alternate between felt flaps and cut-outs going to the felt, such as the cut out scales on stegosaurus's back, through which toddlers can touch the felt.

What I loved: This is a clever and delightful book for young readers. The premise is simple, but little ones love peekaboo, and this is no different. The felt flaps are a really nice touch, and they are quite sturdy/tough for strong toddlers to remove. This book is fun to feel and touch between the flaps and the cut-outs that make it a delight for young readers to experience.

The illustrations are fantastic- many bright colors and featuring the cutest dinosaurs. Children will enjoy looking for T-Rex. Another great thing about the book is that it gives hints for how to find T-Rex, such as noting the similar features that T-Rex has to the other dinosaurs, which you can see peeking out of the flaps, and leading to following T-Rex's footprints behind the eggs. These leading examples help with pattern recognition and deductive reasoning, at a very early level.

The font is easy to read, and the pages are nice and thick, making them easy for little ones to turn on their own. This is a book that is great for toddlers to explore on their own and to share with caregivers.

Final verdict: LET'S FIND THE DINOSAUR is a delightful lift-the-flap hide-and-seek adventure for toddlers and older infants. Brightly colored dinosaurs, fun to touch flaps, and pattern recognition make this a great choice for young readers.
