More About Dinoblock by Christopher Franceschelli; Harry N. Abrams; Peskimo
 
 
 
Overview
Following in the footsteps of the groundbreaking Alphablock and Countablock, Dinoblock features thick pages cut into the shapes of dinosaurs Readers will be introduced to more than 20 different kinds of dinos via die-cuts of their unique silhouettes and the illuminating comparisons to familiar things from a young child's world. I stretch high like the ladder on a fire truck. I am a Brachiosaurus. As children touch the pages, they have a chance to guess the dinosaur and appreciate the uniqueness of its silhouette. A final gatefold delivers a roundup of all the dinos included. This hands-on approach, delivered in colorful pages by hip British design team Peskimo, makes for an immersive, age-appropriate introduction to a favorite topic of childhood.

The team behind Alphablock and Countablock introduce more than 20 dinosaurs in a book that shares the chunky, small format of those titles. The pages alternate between scenes set in the present and in the distant past, allowing contemporary animals and objects (“I am tall like a six-story building...”) to be compared to long-extinct creatures (“I am sauroposeidon”). Die-cuts allow the scenes to overlap, creating an almost subliminal reminder that dinosaurs once roamed in what are now our campgrounds and cities. Less-common dinosaurs are many, and phonetic pronunciations are provided throughout—helpful when getting acquainted with oryctodromeus, euoplocephalus, and micropachycephalosaurus. Ages 1–4. (June)
