Bold, bright, and brimming with facts, this hilariously droll introduction to the prehistoric world will enthrall new dinosaur fans and ignite their curiosity.

Did you know that Giganotosaurus had a tongue big enough to be your bed? That plant eaters evolved at different heights to assure there would be more than enough food for all--with each nibbling at a different point on the tree? Thirty exuberant poems, divided into four fact-packed sections, put readers up close and personal with species from T. rex and Triceratops to Stegosaurus and Velociraptor. Some have lines of terrible teeth, while others sport feathery peacock tails. All thunder off the page in vibrant illustrations pitched to poems that ring with humor and heart, while relaying well-researched facts about dinosaur anatomy, diet, herd behavior, and more. Young devotees will demand to read this energetic tribute to the dinosaurs, in all their larger-than-life glory, over and over again. Back matter includes a time line and information about the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods.

STOMP AND CHOMP: MY FIRST BOOK OF DINOSAURS complies a lot of information in a way that's easy for children to understand with lyrical writing. It's broken up into four sections: Meet the Dinosaurs, Eat or Be Eaten, Dinosaur Families, and The End or Is It. There's an introduction so the readers can understand what to expect to get out of this book. In the Meet the Dinosaur section, we get a basic profile of common dinosaurs written in a fun and engaging way. In the Eat or Be Eaten section, we learn what a lot of the dinosaurs eat and the different types of eaters. I like how the More Than Enough page is vertical and shows a scale of a large tree in comparison to three dinosaurs while explaining how they utilize every part of the tree. In Dinosaur Families, we learn how they group together and in The End or Is It, the reader learns about fossils.

The illustrations are bold and vibrant with simplistic details. In the back of the book, there's a dinosaur timeline that goes into a little of each of the different time periods. This book is packed with so much information that it'll keep dinosaur lovers occupied for a while. I love how some parts read like a fact book and others are like a poem. The different styles of writing and formatting of the illustrations keeps readers on their toes.

Final Verdict: I would recommend this to young children who love dinosaurs and who want to know more. It's a great addition to a child's growing library of dinosaur books and it's a perfect first dinosaur book.
