Dinosaur lovers rejoice! There are loads of new dinosaur books coming to Amazon in 2019, for all ages. Personally, for our twins, we’ve given them dinosaur books meant for older children, before they were the recommended age, because quite frankly – if you love dinosaurs, you love dinosaurs!
I noticed a few new books being published next year, while I was browsing, and have gone rooting for more so I can list them all in one convenient place. Now I’m sharing them with you! Check out this post, for another list of 30 dinosaur books for kids – all available on Amazon.

So Many New Dinosaur Books This Year
The new dinosaur books range from children’s stories, to factual books, and they range from babies books to grown-ups books. Now I don’t particularly hold back any books that I think my children may show interest in, so if a dinosaur book that would typically be aimed at grown-ups is of interest to them, I’d let them have it.
However as I’m a mum blogger I’m listing mainly just the children’s books below, but you can check out the whole list of all the new dinosaur books I’ve found (50 so far!) in my Amazon Influencer storefront here, just in case you’re looking for something aimed at older children/adults too.
Don’t forget the Amazon pre-order price guarantee – order now and if the Amazon price decreases between the time you place your order and the release date, you’ll be charged the lowest price! Yay!
All prices are correct at time of writing this. Let’s crack on!
