Book Description

Oct. 12 2010 National Geographic Kids
In the crowded field of dinosaur books, this is the very first to offer children ages 7 to 10—those at the height of their enthusiasm for the prehistoric giants—complete coverage of all the known dinosaurs.
Don Lessem, author of more than 60 books—most of them about dinosaurs—teams up with Franco Tempesta, a talented illustrator with a fresh and appealing style. The exciting result is an accessible, visually stunning book that’s packed with facts that kids can use to impress their friends and families.
The Ultimate Dinopedia is organized by the periods that are well known to young enthusiasts: Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous. It includes almost every dinosaur ever discovered, and highlights 125 species that scientists know sufficiently to describe in rich detail. Special features include How We Know What They Looked Like, Baby Dinosaurs, Great Dinosaur Goofs, and much more. Every featured dino gets a fact box that delivers important information at a glance—Scientific Name, Discoverer, Place and Date of Discovery, Length, Habitat, Diet, Fossils, Fun Facts, and Range Map. This book provides—in fabulously illustrated, kid-friendly form—all the information an 8-year-old fact hound needs to lord that knowledge over parents and teachers!

4.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't just borrow - had to buy! May 10 2011
By V-nut
My five year old son is a huge dinosaur fan, and after borrowing a few dino books from the library, this was the one to buy. Tons of full-colour pictures, some but not too much interesting text, lots of little details woven in, and a list of all the currently known dinosaurs. My favourite part? Clear pronunciation guides for all the dino names. Only disappointment? Contains only dinosaurs - no pterosaurs (that fly) or pleiosaurs (that swim).

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book on dinosaurs ! July 24 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Best book on dinosaurs I have found yet, and believe me I've seen plenty. It goes into a lot of details for the ages of my kids ( 2, 4 and 6 years old), but it will grow with them. Lots of facts on each dinosaurs and good explanations on dinosaur families, paleontology, etc.
