Publisher’s Synopsis: Welcome to the amazing world of dinosaurs! Children ages 8 and up can discover where these prehistoric creatures lived, the food they ate, and what they may have looked like. Along the way, they’ll encounter bone-crushing teeth, slashing claws, and spiked tails while learning fascinating facts about dinosaur eggs and fossils, moving continents, climate changes, exploding volcanoes, and even an asteroid crashing into Earth.
Other Books in the Series:
Young dinosaur lovers will soak up the facts in this engaging book.
My First Book About Dinosaurs is filled with black and white illustrations that allow readers to use it like a coloring book. It’s perfect for reluctant readers, as there aren’t large chunks of text. This forty-six-page book is packed with information about dinosaurs – from how fossils are made and how paleontologists discover and extract those fossils to how dinosaurs are reconstructed for display at museums.
My First Book About Dinosaurs is broken down into the eras that dinosaurs lived. It features which types of dinosaurs lived during those eras and where they could be found. This book covers the typical types of dinosaurs such as Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaurus, and Velociraptor. But it also shares information about lesser-known dinosaurs such as Guanlong, Scutellosaurus, Australovenator, and Carnotaurus.
My First Book About Dinosaurs will spark children’s interest to find out more about these creatures from prehistoric times.
