My favourite book about dinosaurs

ksoles Jan 31, 2015

This amazingly detailed reference book begins by describing the characteristics of dinosaurs, the diversity among dinosaurs and general life in the Mesozoic era. It then covers the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods as well as the Cenozoic world.

The vivid, primary illustrations of each dinosaur take up a full spread and every species write-up is enhanced by at least seven drawings of skeletal systems, body parts and examples of fossilized remains. Along with data charts displaying the dinosaurs' habitats, lengths and diets, the tops of the pages feature timelines displaying of when each dinosaur roamed the earth.

Snippets and fun facts scatter the book's pages and even introduce some of the paleontologists that made famous dino discoveries. Finally, the end of the book contains "dinosaur science," which includes information on fossil sites, modern dinosaur research, dinosaur biology, the great extinction and birds-dinosaur survivors.

Though geared towards older children and young adults, dinosaur aficionados of any age will revel in this complete paleontological adventure.
