The prehistoric world has always been a fascination to little ones. There is something about dinosaurs that really appeals to their imagination. The desire to learn about these ancient creatures, their habitat and lifestyle and master their funny names is endlessly sort after from one generation to the next. Toy models and floor mats in our holiday properties are always in use and dinosaurs are a favourite theme for our crafty activity hour each week. With this in mind I was thrilled to receive a copy of the Layer by Layer discovering Dinosaurs book complete with sounds from Quarto Kids. Read on to discover what we love about this book and how you can win your copy.
