Dinosaur lovers will like playing a concentration matching game with the 18 pairs of dinos in this game. The playing pieces are small enough to fit in a baggie and carry along on a flight or take out in a restaurant while you are waiting for food. These kinds of games develop beginning matching and memory, basic skills needed for beginning reading. Aside from the name labels, that kids often love to repeat, this is a good game for talking about the differences between the dinos pictured—the ones that walk on four legs vs two, the ones with spikes or sails or wings. You might go on and look up which ones were meat eaters and which were plant eaters. Marked 3 & up.
