Description

Dinosaurs are extinct now, but you can visit dinosaur skeletons in a museum. There you will meet Brachiosaurus, Stegosaurus, and Diplodocus and learn how they ruled the earth millions of years ago. You'll see dinosaurs with over 1,000 teeth, dinosaurs who could swim, meat-eaters and plant-eaters. And, of course, you'll meet the king of all dinosaurs, the gigantic Tyrannosaurus rex. This nonfiction picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 4 to 6. It's a fun way to learn to read and as a supplement for activity books for children.

This is a Level 2 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science title, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) standards. Let's-Read-and-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.

Review quote

"Like the original edition, this book introduces young children to dinosaurs through a visit to a natural history museum. It's the new illustrations that make [it] worth purchasing; Aliki's clear, full-color pictures provide just enough detail to maintain young children's interest without confusing them. An excellent introduction to paleontology." --"SLJ."

Our customer reviews

My four-year-old loves this book. It\'s a good combination of a fictional story with lots of real life facts and info in it. In the story a young boy visits a natural history museum with dinosaur skeletons in it. It gives very basic info about fossils and how they were discovered, and how the skeletons are put together by paleontologists. The story then goes on to talk about several different types of dinosaurs and what we know about them from looking at their fossils. Plus, the illustrations are great--not cartoonish at all and are more of what you\'d find in a children\'s encyclopedia. This is a great book for the young explorer or blossoming scientist in your household.show more
