Wonderbook: Walking with Dinosaurs is a very fun and interactive way to learn about dinosaurs. The activities are fast-paced and diverse, and the game lingers on each only long enough for players to try something new -- such as feeding a dinosaur or roaring to attract a potential mate -- and to learn a couple of cool facts. Then it's time to move on to the next one.

The augmented-reality element is well integrated and works pretty much perfectly in tandem with the PlayStation Move controller. Flipping pages reveals new environments that pop up from the book and feel as though they're in your living room. Players get to intuitively interact with them using the PlayStation wand, chipping away at rocks, using a grabber to collect specimens, or swiping to defend themselves from the attacks of angry predators. Anyone with even a slight interest in our planet's giant ancient reptiles will be enthralled.

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.
