2009 Award
Sounds of the Wild: Dinosaurs
(by Maurice Pledger/ paper engineering Keith Finch, Silver Dolphin Books $16.95 Score:)

Each of the dinosaur eras is represented with an amazing pop-up scene that features the dinosaurs of that time along with birds and other mammals all accompanied with sound effects that add to the excitement. The information in between the pop-ups is set in such small type that young readers will have a problem and older readers will need a magnifier. That said, this is still an amazingly handsome book. The text on the pop-up page is simple enough for young readers to comprehend and the details will interest the most devoted dinohaulics.
