Introduce your little genius to the essential first words related to all things dinosaurs!

From the #1 bestselling science author for kids comes a simple and colourful introduction to the first 100 dinosaur words every baby should know. Each spread in this primer focuses on 8 to 12 words related to dinosaurs — from Microraptor to Spinosaurus, Jurassic to Cretaceous, spines to frill to horns and more!

Chris Ferrie’s latest offering is the perfect way to introduce basic concepts to even the youngest dino enthusiast. After all, it’s never too early to become a dino buff!



Chris Ferrie’ writing, Lindsay Dale-Scott’s illustrations, AND it’s about dinosaurs? Who could have a problem with that?

This time we have an awesome new science books for cool kids who are into DINOSAURS and the weird and wonderful words to describe everything to do with them! Ferrie writes books for baby geniuses who are in full sponge-mode and ready to absorb all the sciency goodness on offer… and the adults in their lives who will probably learn something, too… 

Collected here, you’ll find a range of words, some easy, some hard, some fun to say aloud in silly voices. All informative!

You’ll find easier words like herd, tail, sail, claw, beak, horn, and feathers.

Harder words like jurassic, predator, terrestrial, paleontologist, ornamentation, and paleobiologist.

Weirder, lesser heard words like archaeopteryx, thagomizer, permineralized, pycnofiber, quetzalcoatlus, and gastroliths. 

It’s targeted at ages 0-3, but is fun for the whole family, even if you don’t have any kids in the target group and are just a massively proud dino nerd!
