Dinosaur Train "Let’s Go to Volcano Valley" Flap Book from Reader’s Digest GIVEAWAY

This post may contain affiliate links, view our disclosure policy for details.



Dinosaur Train has a new flap book from Reader’s Digest out called “Let’s Go to Volcano Valley!” and they’ve offered one of my readers to win a copy!! 
Here’s an excerpt about the book:
Get ready to board the Dinosaur Train and meet some new friends! Buddy, the adorable preschooler Tyrannosaurus Rex, and this adoptive Pteranodon family are always on the move. Today, they are going to Volcano Valley. Along the way, the train is making stops at the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous stations to make dozens of dinosaur discoveries. With more than 40 flaps tolift, kids will want to explore Buddy’s world again and again!


Did you know that the month of July is National Recreation and Parks month? The theme for this year’s month-long outdoor celebration is “Rock Your Park”! A perfect fit for the Dinosaur Train crew! The NRPA has listed ways that you and your family can celebrate outside this month! Our family loves visiting nature trails, geocaching, swimming, biking, exploring caves, and anything else that would lead us outdoors! 


On July 4th Dinosaur Train has a new episode with Buddy and his friends as they play footprint detectives!! You don’t want to miss out on that which is airing on PBS kids! And on August 22, 2011 a new Dinosaur Train DVD (Dinosaur Big City) is coming out! 

 

 
And check out these CUTE new Dinosaur Train products that are coming out!! They have new Dinosaur train games, Magnetic play sets, scooters, and even a fun station house for kids to play in!

    With our own 3 daughters, we noticed they dropped the ball on reading as soon as school let out. We've challenged them to read 1000 books (all together) this summer. The reward is a trip to Great Wolf Lodge. They've been little reading machines and will soon make the goal!!
