*About the Book*
Nibbles the Book Monster is back in another book. This time, he’s disturbing four Dinosaurs from Herbivores like Triceratops and Diplodocus to Velociraptor and Tyrannosaur Rex. Kids will learn fascinating facts about Dinosaurs as they follow Nibbles causing trouble throughout the book. Nibbles isn’t really good at hiding from kids, so it’ll be easy to follow him. The book monster also bites through the pages once again as he interacts with the Dinosaurs. Kids will laugh and have fun as they learn about Triceratops, Diplodocus, Tyrannosaur Rex.
As a parent, you can enjoy the book as well because you will also learn some interesting facts about the four Dinosaurs mentioned in the book. For example, did you know Diplodocus poop has a possibility of weighing up to two tons and may make a thirty-foot long poop puddle? That’s pretty disgusting, right? Well you may think that, but kids will get a kick out of the fact and probably laugh so hard. The book teaches both of you about the length, height, weight, and diet of the Dinosaurs. Each Dinosaurs’ footprints are included in the facts. The book is definitely a fun way of learning about Dinosaurs.
*How My Daughter Reacts To The Book*
My daughter loves this Nibbles book as well. Some of the information does go over her head, but she enjoys seeing Nibbles cause trouble with the Dinosaurs. I love hearing her say, “Oh no, Nibbles, what are you doing now,” after each new Dinosaurs. My daughter loves the poop fact I talked about above and following his footprints to the holes just like in Nibbles: The Book Monster. She also makes her plush eat the pages as well. It’s just too cute seeing her interact with the book in her own way. She may not know it yet, but she’s learning about Dinosaurs. I’m secretly loving every moment of her having so much fun with a book with so much information because I know one day she will remember and surprise me.
My hubby plays Ark: Survival on Xbox, so she already loves Dinosaurs. She got the book on Easter and was so excited to read the book with Daddy. I fell in love with the way she instantly got excited about having something my hubby and her can share. It’s truly amazes me how one book about a cute little monster and dinosaurs can bring such joy all because daddy loves a similar thing.
