Got a potential paleontologist in the family? Until they can follow in Mary Anning’s footsteps keep their interest piqued with the brilliant Dino Domino (Magma for Laurence King, RRP£9.99). You really can’t beat dominoes as a game for pre-readers – so simple, but so satisfying for them to match the pictures and make a pattern. With 28 dominoes featuring seven dinosaurs, illustrated by Caroline Selmes, this set is so bright and colourful it can’t fail to be a hit – we have the dog version of this and it has been played to death. Super gift.
