Is It Any Good?

This serves as a solid introduction to dinosaurs and paleontology for kids who are abe to read and understand sequences (like steps from egg to adult dinosaur), but it has a few flaws. What Were Dinosaurs Like? falls into a difficult area where it's too challenging content-wise for most preschoolers but not in-depth enough to satisfy the curiosity of elementary school kids. There's definitely learning to be had for kids who aren't already experts, but there aren't enough fun activities or variety to give it much replay value.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
