Gigantosaurus Book Series From Candlewick Entertainment Review

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I received the books from Candlewick Entertainment for free in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Affiliate links are also used in this post. You can read my full disclosure here.

My toddler currently loves dinosaurs, so I knew she would love these new books about Gigantosaurus! All 3 books are available on Amazon and recommended for ages 3-7. 

The Story of Gigantosaurus

In The Story of Gigantosaurus, 4 young dinosaurs named Mazu, Rocky, Bill, and Tiny set out on an adventure to find Gigantosaurus, a dinosaur they find both fascinating and terrifying. On their journey, they meet many other dinosaurs and somehow end up in the mouth of the very dinosaur they fear most! 

The book is based on the TV Series, Gigacntosaurus, and is a great way to introduce kids to the show. The illustrations are well done, very colorful, perfect for keeping your toddler's attention. 

The story itself is a little long, so your toddler (3-4 year old) may want to turn to the next page before you are done with reading. 

Gigantosaurus: The Lost Egg

In Gigantosauru: The Lost Egg, the 4 young dinosaurs, Mazu, Rocky, Bill, and Tiny, find a lost egg and are not sure what to do with it. The group of friends set out to find the egg's family, but discover it's not an easy task and get a surprise from Gigantosaurus, but not as surprising as what hatches from the egg!

This is another cute story, with a wonderful lesson that even tough guys can be gentle, encouraging kids to not be afraid to show their soft side.

I thought The Story of Gigantosaurus was long, but this one was even wordier, so again, your toddler (3-4 year old) may try to turn to the next page before you are done with reading. 

This book has the same beautiful, eye-catching illustrations that will definitely capture your little one's attention. It also comes with stickers, which your kids will love!

Gigantosaurus: Don’t Cave In

In Gigantosaurus: Don't Cave In, Mazu, Rocky, Bill, and Tiny find themselves running from Gigantosaurus. They end up hiding in a cave to get away even though they have been told a Shriekosaurus lives in there.  While in the cave, they decide to explore. What will they find and how will they get home?

This book is probably about the same length as Gigantosaurus: The Lost Egg, so if your toddler (3-4 year old) is like mine, it can be hard to wait to turn the page. They will probably be more into the pictures. 

I love the message the book gives about how it is okay to be afraid, and being brave and facing your fears.

The artwork is, once again, stunning and this book also comes with stickers!
