I thought I Saw A Dinosaur! By Lydia Nichols- ESSENTIAL

I Thought I Saw A Dinosaur! By Lydia Nichols, BOARD BOOK. Candlewick Press, 2018. $8. 9780763699451


I Thought I Saw A Dinosaur! is an interactive book focusing on playing a game of hide-and-seek. There are very few pages due to the complex nature of creating the hide and seek mechanisms but well worth the price! This is a unique book unlike any other I have read.  Children use a “dial” or slider on each page to move the dinosaur into view. The dinosaur is a bright green neon color that makes hunting easy and fun.

Nichols creates a  perfect combination of fun and learning  Not only will children love looking for the dinosaur, each page has multiple illustrations that could be used to reinforce counting and some color recognition.  I can see parents spending many hours with this fun interactive board book.
