    1. I need a younger child to test this on. My thinking is that it's brilliant on so many levels: as an ABC, as a dino-factoid book, as a work of art for the dino illustrations built out of letters, but also for the col pages that are die-cut and fold-out.But I don't know. Maybe that's just me being all font-geeky and maybe an actual child would find it had too little info about dinos? Sure, I mean, yes, obviously, there are some children who would feel that way. But those children are theoretical t [...]

    2. I LOVE this book, and so does my 5 year old, isn't that great?! :) Alphasars and Other Prehistoric Types is an A-Z book of Dinosaurs and such but done in a refreshing and wonderful fashion.Flipping to a random page in the book I come to Parasaurolophus -phew what a mouthful- and as with every other page, the creature takes main stage but it is created using ONLY the upper and lower-case letters that it begins with. So the Parasaurolophus is only comprised of p's and P's. Each dinosaur also comes [...]

    3. Alphasaurs and Other Prehistoric Types is an alphabet book only containing dinosaur names A-Z, that includes fun facts about each species. I think this is such a creative way to teach kids their ABC’s, while also educating them on dinosaurs. Each page gives a dinosaurs name starting with the letter, as well as, fun facts that revolve around that letter as well. The pictures are fantastic because each dinosaur is illustrated only using the letter its name starts with. There are also flaps to fl [...]

    4. This book by far is the coolest dinosaur book I have seen! It not only is a nonfiction book about dinosaurs, but it is an Alphabet book from A-Z about Dinosaurs. The illustrations and design in one of my favorites! This book would be great for an history about dinosaurs. It has a lot of interesting and factual information about dinosaurs. I like how much information you receive about dinosaurs in this book and each dinosaur is created using typography. Typography refers to the way letters look a [...]

    5. Nonfiction/Twin Text Entry #3 The nonfiction book I chose was "Alphasaurs and Other Prehistoric Types" and the fiction book I paired it with is, "How do Dinosaurs Say Good Night?" I loved both of these books. In the nonfiction text it goes through the alphabet and gives us facts about a dinosaur that starts with whatever letter you are on. The reason I paired it with the fiction book is because that book goes through the different ways dinosaurs could say good night. However, while going through [...]

    6. I enjoyed this book personally, but I am a little confused about the intended audience. It is a dinosaur alphabet book with brief text, so one would assume it is for preschoolers, but the delicate die-cut gatefolds will be destroyed in less than a day. My four year old declared it boring, and I think the dinosaurs made out of letters were too abstract for her. So, maybe K-3, but this is definitely not for beginning readers, with the challenging layout, some very small print, and multicolored wor [...]

    7. This book deserves 6 stars! Each letter of the alphabet is a different dinosaur; the illustrations were created using a variety of sizes of typesetting of the letter for the name of the dinosaur. Also included are interesting short facts about each dinosaur. Some pages lift up high, fold out sideways, or fold down. When the dinosaur is compared to something else for size (animal or object), the comparison begins with the same letter as the dinosaur! (Brachiosaurous compared to basketball court; [...]

    8. This book takes the alphabet to a whole new level. Yes, there is a page for each letter with a dinosaur to match, but the dinosaurs themselves are created with typography - using the letter itself repeated to create the shape of the creature. A great book for readers who love dinosaurs and playful language. Each page contains information about each animal, shared as accessible facts. Some pages have paper flaps that allow the reader to explore to find even more information. Overall this is a fun [...]

    9. So many things to love about this book. It's gorgeous and informative; its beautiful, clear, engaging design is absolutely perfect for dinosaur-loving, alphabet-learning preschoolers/PKers. (So. of them.) The "all the dinosaurs are made out of LETTERS?" moment is great. The facts on each page are whimsically alliterative to go with the alphabet theme. If you've already gotten out the magnifying glass and brushes for an archaeological fossil dig, this book pairs perfectly for a close-up investiga [...]

    10. normally I am a little skeptical of dinosaur oriented books because we only have fossils and yet illustrations speculate on color and texture of skin. This book is different though. All the dinosaurs are made of letters. They used different typefaces for each dinosaur and used the first letter in the name of the dinosaur in order to illustrate it! genius! each page is letter themed in a-z order. fun flaps provide additional information in creative and unique ways. fun book.

    11. preS-g3WOW. This is an amazing book. It goes through the alphabet of dinosaur names. What is unique is that the letter type helps illustrate the story - literally. For example, many letter A's and a's create the shape of the allosaurus. Then examples at the bottom also use the shape of the capital letter A for "Angry and Agressive" to describe it. Or the size example uses "a" words to describe the Allasaurus height - "as tall as a apple tree and weighed as much as an automobile."

    12. Cool cool neato cool book. It's not really an alphabet book (I wouldn't recommend it to anyone under 4 unless they are HUGE dino fans) - I think using the alphabet format is just a clever way to organize the book and it IS clever. My interest in dinosaurs really started when the first Land Before Time movie came out and fizzled out until the Jurassic Park books/movies. However, I found this book very fascinating!

    13. Is it just me or are there way more dinosaur types than there used to be? Back in the day, you had your T. Rexes and your triceratops and THAT WAS IT. And you liked it. Now I can't even do a dinosaur storytime without fear that a 2-year old will correct my pronunciation and make me look like an idiot.

    14. The illustrations, the fonts, the information presented for an ABC book featuring dinosaurs – perfect. This book will lure the littlest ones into the world of these giants – just by the way they are pictured here – bright, colorful, and interesting. Also a cute gift for anyone who loves dinosaurs.Rating: B+ Reread Level: 4.5/5

    15. This was a great book. I do miss actual pictures of dinosaurs, but using letters to create dinosaurs was really clever and they did an amazing job doing so.The facts were clear, interesting and concise. The flip out portions were cool. My son loved seeing what was underneath. Great way to keep a child interested.Thanks for the pronunciations, even I had a hard time with a few of them.

    16. A dinosaur book with an alphabet theme. Fun illustrations compose dinosaurs out of uppercase and lowercase letters. Quirky fold outs and cut outs add more visual adventures. Simple facts about each creature also focus on the beginning letter. Each name is broken down phonetically for dinosaur newbies.

    17. Pre K plusdouble page spreadlots of information on pagesome pages have pulloutslike the use of the highlighted letter in the dinosaur character as well as the different fonts on the pagecolor of page sets the tone of book

    18. A book of alphabetic dinosaur creations. Each letter is represented by a type of dinosaur then each shape of the animal is crafted by various sizes of the letter. Lots of information is provided in little side notes. Alliterative fun for all along with fun fold-outs.

    19. Fun illustrations using varied sizes and fonts of the initial letter in each creature's name. Love the die-cut pages, the offbeat facts, and the pronunciation helps. Overall, this is a winner with upper elementary readers.

    20. Wow, so much going on here. A great example of executing a simple idea in a very meticulous way. The content would make it a good fit for older elementary and not those learning their ABCS. This is def a book from the inforgraphic movement full of playful and thoughtful graphic design.

    21. I love this book! My second graders study dinosaurs and I can see this book being VERY popular with them. However, while I do love all the flaps they do worry me. I can see this book being torn many times.

    22. Sharon Werner and Sarah Forss are masters at creating stunning visuals using a variety of typefaces, fold-outs and die-cuts; bold and brilliant.My full review:bit/UgvXgM

    23. I love all the "alpha" books. If my nephew were younger and still obsessed with dinosaurs, I would buy this for him. I especially love that they mention Fruita, Colorado!

    24. If you have young children, grandloves, or students, you must put this book in their hands. AMAZING! It's not just an ABC book, it is so much more!

    25. Fantastic Book!All about dinosaurs, factoids. Alphabet book. Each Dinosaur is shaped by the letter of the alphabet. So excited.

    26. Very well done dinosaur/alphabet book. It has fun and often funny factoids as well as illustrations of the dinosaurs created with typography.
