We had purchased another of the author's books (which is one of my son's favorites) and this was not quite the same. Definitely not appropriate for a two year old - at least ours. Lots of interesting activities for the slightly older crowd in my opinion. We tried looking through it once with my son but he was not interested. We'll try again later as he develops more reasoning skills.
I work with pre-K children with cognitive and language needs. I use this particular book to support expressive and receptive language development. The content is meaningful to young children and the story is motivating. The map is a new concept and offers multiple opportunities for answering WHAT, WHERE, and WHY questions.
This is a wonderful book to read with a preschooler -- particularly one who is interested in maps. Two dinosaurs decide to go on a trip to visit their friend and need to read the map to find their way to her home. The pictures are bright and bold and this is a great introduction to map-reading and interpreting symbols. My sons love to point out the roads on the map in the book and talk about the other features like railroads, lakes and particularly "Crumbly Castle." Each picture has lots of details to discuss with your children -- what are Dexter and Delilah ordering at the rest stop? Which way should they turn now? Where did they leave their car keys? Lots of fun for all.
