Dinosaur Explorers will captivate children and make them real experts. Through intuitive illustrated infographic tables, children will learn everything from the shape of the eggs and the anatomy of the dinosaurs to their great extinction. Clear explanations, a timetable, charts and scales will reveal all the secrets of the dinosaur world.
“For budding dinomaniacs eager to fill gaps in their knowledge of dinosaur anatomy, behavior, and family trees. The survey, presented in a variety of infographics, begins with a pair of winding timelines carrying bite-sized narrative blocks and flat, stylized dinos. It then goes on to group the dinosaurs—generally though not always to scale—according to types of bodies and defensive armament, relative sizes, eggs, teeth, plumage and colors, and probable nesting and herding habits. A helpful index/glossary precedes a teeming prehistoric portrait gallery at the end. Though rough around the edges, it’s witty on occasion and chock full of dinosaurs throughout. (Informational picture book. 7-10)”
