I am NOT a Dinosaur!

I am NOT a Dinosaur!

I’m sticking with a prehistoric theme today.  This morning saw me talking about Dinotrux toys and this afternoon I’m sharing a prehistoric delight in the form of a great, factual book. I am NOT a Dinosaur! is another great find from Sterling Books, which is written by Will Lack and illustrated by Jonny Lambert.

I am NOT a Dinosaur!

Monkey has learnt so much about the prehistoric world both from school topics and Andy’s Prehistoric Adventures in CBeebies, and I am NOT a Dinosaur! gives him a factual guide to some of his favourite creatures.

I am NOT a Dinosaur!

We visited the Natural History Museum again in London recently, and Monkey was thrilled to find a Woolly Mammoth on display, and just as excited to discover one in this book.

The illustrations throughout are just lovely.  Through rhyming text we are introduced to a wide range of animals, from ocean faring Dunkleosteus and Latimeria to airborne Pterosaurs.

I am NOT a Dinosaur!

Even Neanderthal man gets a mention, along with some rather well known dinosaurs.

At the back of I am NOT a Dinosaur! there a few facts about each animal along with a timeline placing each animal mentioned into the relevant prehistoric time period.

We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.

  1. I just love dinasaur -so many different types and each one is fescinating could explore these everyday as I find them fascinating

  2. I was always fascinated by the sabre-toothed tiger as a kid, so that’s my answer, even though we’re not supposed to call it that any more.

  3. I’ve always liked the look of woolly mammoths. I think they would be quite friendly creatures.

  4. I love dinosaurs …. i love helping my kids learn about the different types and what they ate, etc …. We also love “The Good Dinosaur” film 🙂

  5. My daughters favourite is the Stygimoloch, she watches the dinosaur train and learns so much about dinosaurs from it

  6. T Rex would have loved to have seen a real one but make do with a small stuffed one

  7. I always liked the triceratops when I was little because they have my name in the middle of theirs!

  8. Has to be the wolly mammoth. Not going to lie, purely because of the film Ice Age, I love Manny!

  9. I love the dinosaur as there was so many different types big and small and very interesting creatures

  10. Pterodactyls. They were clever but fierce big things and I’d have loved to have seen them flying around.

  11. It has to be dinosaurs as they are the most interesting and have a wide variety to interest all kinds

  12. Dinosaurs because they have become an enduring part of world culture. The large sizes of some dinosaur groups, as well as their seemingly monstrous nature, have ensured persistent public enthusiasm for them.

  13. I have a soft spot for the giant prehistoric shark – the Megalodon. Sea creatures often get overlooked but they are just awesome.

  14. I always loved the Diploducus, I always thought it was cute when I was younger, with it’s tiny head

  15. Which is your favourite prehistoric animal – dinosaur or other, and why? . . . . .Diplodocus . . . . . .simply because it’s such a fun name

  16. Apatosaurus! Because of the movie Land Before Time where there is little foot known as a long neck. I was obsessed with it when I was younger and would watch is all the time!

  17. T-Rex is my favourite. I’ve had a lifelong fascination with dinosaurs (and my kids love them too).

  18. Parasaurolophus because my 3 year old was so proud when he learnt how to pronounce it!

  19. Not my favourite, but most fascinating to me is the Cockroach; they say that it is one of the oldest surviving species.

  20. Diplodocus, me and my little girl like going to see dippy in the natural history museum in London

  21. The diplodocus. With that long neck and being a plant eater it seems to be jayden’s fav. He says it doesn’t eat people!

  22. The trilobites are my favourite prehistoric animal, i could spend hours looking at all the fossils in Wales National Museum, love the knobbly beasties

  23. the Pachycephalosaurus because they charged at people with their heads and it reminds me of my little boy as a toddler charging at peoples legs haha

  24. A woolly Mammoth, I think they where quite friendly during their lives and they are just awesome!

  25. The Woolley mamouth. I don’t know whether or not its to do with my love for the Ice Age films, but they look like such fantastic creatures x
