My 5 year old loved this. We have read it multiple times and can't wait to visit the REAL T-Rex in NY one day. She thought it was amazing that it was a true story. Great for any kid into fossils, geology, and/or dinosaurs!

This book was a hit and miss. My 7 yr old liked it but my 5 yr old found it too long. It has agreat amount of history facts in it and is a bit long winded for younger readers.
