Dinosaur Park

Hannah Wilson, Author, Steve Weston, Illustrator, Mike Davis, Concept by , illus. by Steve Weston. Kingfisher $17.99 (0p) ISBN 978-0-7534-6383-3

The four, full-spread pop-up scenes that make up this entertaining book are sandwiched between a narrow “Field Guide,” which contains basic dinosaur facts (as well as images of their footprints, for matching purposes), and an envelope containing nine paper dinosaurs to play with. Each of the scenes, labeled “T. Rex Valley,” “Triceratops Volcano,” etc., asks playful questions that encourage investigation, such as “Who is trying to eat the eggs?” An enjoyable interactive exploration. Ages 3–up. (Oct.)
