Review of There Were Dinosaurs Everywhere by Howard Temperley

The phenomenon of the dinosaur is one that continues to fascinate people of all ages. A fun-filled history of the many species of dinosaurs, their eras, and interesting facts about them, this book is not only informative, but funny and captivating as well. Featuring amusing and attractive illustrations, this unique edition discusses a variety of topics, from the Velociraptor and Pterodactylus to the Jurassic Era and dinosaur extinction.

5 stars

There Were Dinosaurs Everywhere is a great book to read to your kids.  My daughter is two years old and I had to hide this book from her so she wouldn't rip the pages out while trying to enjoy it.  We had a lot of fun reading about the different eras of dinosaurs and the fun creatures that were contained within these pages.  The illustrations are another high point in this book . They were bright and cartoony which made them a lot of fun for my daughter to look at.  I can't recommend this book enough for kids who love dinosaurs and parents who love to read to their children.  


  1. That a kid wants to tear pages out of a book says a lot positive. What age of child/reading level is it at for a child to enjoy on their own?

  2. She likes the pictures more than having any ability to read the book. The reading level is a tough one to guess. There is a fairly simple rhyme scheme to it, but it has some scientific terms plus the dinosaurs names, making it a bit tough for a younger reader to sound out.
