Our Thoughts

IMG_5748We had the opportunity in the past to review the Dinosaurs for Kids book (showed proudly my my daughter, Jasmine).   So when I stumbled on an announcement of the new ebook version, I asked if it could be possible to review it.   I was given a copy of the ebook version without hesitation.   To be honest I was curious how a book that is already amazing could become better in an ebook format.

The first thing my kids and I proceeded to do was to compared the two – the real book and the ebook version.   And trust me when I tell you that you are getting more information in the ebook format!   Now only do you have interaction in the original text but you will also personalized pages for each other dinosaurs mentioned in the book with full pronunciation of their names, videos to illustrate a specific explanation, stunning pictures demonstrating the fossils or the dinosaurs footprints, and much more.

I have reviewed ebooks that contained videos before but there wasn’t any sound in the ones I had received.  However, I was delighted to hear the commentary of the person while watching the video about the birth of an alligator.    It was very information and educational at the same time both for the learning about dinosaurs and the technological side of ebooks.   I always thought that the technology wasn’t quite there for videos in an ebook but I was wrong.    Dinosaurs for Kids is an high-tech ebook that is quite complete and offer a tremendous quality of photos, videos and interaction for the family.

It is so easy to use that even a four years old can do it.   Here you can see Jasmine (age 4) going through the book… and her brother Jérémy (age 7) looking over the sofa simply because he didn’t feel like sitting next to her.

Jasmine really loved the video showing the birth of the babies alligators which is thought to be similar to the birth of dinosaurs.   Actually, all the kids spent some time to explore and discover this ebook as it is packed with fascinating information about how dinosaurs lived, survived the flood and slowly disappeared through the ages.

Here’s some of the pages you will find in the ebook Dinosaurs for Kids.   Every now and then you will get an icon titled Click 2 Discover in a page.  Simply click on that icon to access an interactive section of the ebook.

If your child is highly interested in dinosaurs and you are looking for a book based on biblical account, I strongly suggest that you consider Dinosaurs for Kids as it contains fascinating information about these beasts that used to roam the Earth.   This book opened my eyes on a whole new perspective about dinosaurs and I am very happy to have it so I can teach my kids about the biblical view of the existence and disappearance of the dinosaurs.

Please take the time to check out the official video promoting Dinosaurs for Kids.   It will give you a better view of what to expect in the book.

 Dinosaurs for Kids is available on iTunes for the price of 9.99$.
