This book is solid. Even for a board book. The pages are so thick, I suspect our son is going to keep trying to split them, like we've skipped one!
The "story" is great. Clear. Direct, without being preachy. The illustrations manage to capture some of the looks any toddler parent will recognize. And dinosaurs, which kids seem to love at some point!
The illustrations seem to be about as detailed as the bigger books, as well. They are just scaled down versions. Of course I miss all the dinosaurs pictured in the endpapers of the bigger books, but the board books are more portable for the car, etc. and not as easily damaged.
We also got the board book "How Do Dinosaurs Clean Their Rooms" and like it as well. However, "How Do Dinosaurs Count To Ten" and "How Do Dinosaurs Learn Their Colors" are our least favorite books in the series.
My son is 18 months old and we started him with these books at about a year old. They are his favorites! He loves to pick out the small details he recognizes (toy trucks & balls, the dog or cat, etc.). And he definitely cares from one day to the next which one we pick out to read - they don't all seem the same to him. He likes some of the dinosaurs better than others, some of the stories better, etc. Great series.
My only question is, why are all the dinosaurs male? I have a boy so I didn't think of it until recently, after reading the series for six months. We have all the books and all the dinosaurs are referred to as "he". I know, they are tough and scary, but there has to be female dinosaurs, too! Unfortunately, stereotypes are being reinforced here. But that is my ONLY complaint with these books. I'm sure girls will love them, too. The dinosaurs are pictured in a "people" world, inside houses, riding in cars, inside school, etc., so the message is not gender-specific.
