Fun and fact-filled dinosaur show
3 November 2005 | by cathschuySee all my reviews

This series is excellent. The dinosaurs are so realistic I have to keep reminding myself that they're computer-generated. There are fact cards displayed for the statisticians among us, then the narrators follow particular dinosaurs through eating, egg-laying, and growing up. There are plenty of kid-pleasing specifics, like information about dinosaur poop and the creatures that live off it. The series covers many different kinds of dinosaurs, not just the famous ones, so you hear about swimming dinosaurs and even early mammals as well as T-Rex and Stegosaurus. My five-year-old loves the series, and I suspect she will continue to love it for the next four or five years, at least.
