Dinosaur Facts Brought to Life with QED Books

Dinosaur Facts Brought to Life with QED Books

Books are always the staple of any learning I do with the children. We have a fair few dinosaur based books that I have been lucky enough to review over the past year (see here and here for just a couple). I was however looking for something that was specific to the triceratops which is firmly Mr D’s favourite dinosaur and a book that would present some basic key facts in a really easy way for him and Miss E to begin to understand.

My first port of call was to take a look on the Quarto website. Quarto really do produce some of the most exciting children’s books so I knew I would find what I was looking for. I soon found the ‘there’s a …’ series of books and promptly ordered the triceratops one.This series of books from QED are perfect for sharing simple but Dinosaur facts brought to life for young children


The book is superb and in a funny but clear way helps to tell young children more about the triceratops. Mr D and Miss E have loved reading this and were very excited to find the diplodocus version in a local library last week.

The text is really accessible and gives experiences and examples that young children can relate to. It can be hard sometimes to try and get across to the young children the sheer size and scale of a dinosaur.

There are four books in the series:

  • There’s  a triceratops in the tree house
  • There’s a diplodocus at the door
  • There’s a stegosaurus on the stairs
  • There’s a t-rex in town

The three we don’t have are on the wish list for the children as they will be books that we return to time and time again I am sure.

QED Dinosaur books

Quarto have some fab dinosaur based books for all ages and I am excited about this See Inside book – we had a see inside the human body one recently and the children love looking at the ‘skeleton man’ and this Day of the Dinosaurs from my all time fave imprint, Wide Eyed Editions is on my own wishlist!

I really can’t recommend this series of books enough – they really are superb and with engaging illustrations, engaging exciting text they’ve been perfect for my little dinosaur hunters.

      Indeed – we are very much in a dinosaur phase at the moment and it is lovely to see how much they’re learning and taking in x

    Funny but my grandkids aren’t much bothered with dinosaurs. These books look like they’ll make a welcome change from diggers and cars 🙂 #readwithme
