Encyclopedia Prehistorica - Dinosaurs, Sharks, Mega-Beasts
Encyclopedia Prehistorica - Complete Collection
The Encyclopedia Prehistorica is not your usual collection of pop-up books. Amazingly intricate and detailed dinosaurs, sharks and mega-beasts emerge from the pages. These books will delight children with an interest in dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures. Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart are extremely skilled artists who have produced an amazing collection of books at a very good price.
We have two dinosaur mad boys. The older one will be getting the boxed set of Encyclopedia Prehistorica for Christmas this year - he'll be 4. The books are aimed at aged 4 to 8. Younger children would certainly enjoy them with supervision and I'll bet older children and adults will want to take a look too.
Definitely one of the best dinosaur Christmas presents around!
Update: My four year old got the Encyclopedia Prehistorica for Christmas. It really is superb. Of course the pop-ups are seriously amazing. But I'm so impressed with the research that has gone into finding fascinating facts about the prehistoric world. I've been really enjoying sharing these books with my son and I think we'll still be looking at them in several years time.
Encyclopedia Prehistorica: The Complete Collection
These books are a masterpiece of art and engineering and are packed full of dinosaur facts too. This is the kind of gift that a child will hold on to into adulthood and want to share with their own children.
The big pop-up beasts are amazing (and just a little scary!). But Reinhart and Sabuda don't stop there, the book is full of mini pop-ups too. Brilliantly executed.
