The Big Book of Dinosaurs by Dougal Dixon appeals to kids going through their “dinosaur phase.” But maybe we never really get out of that phase because dinosaurs are so fascinating! Scientists have recently discovered so many new types of dinosaurs, and so much more about how they functioned. This book poses dozens of questions you might wonder about. Questions like “how much did an ankylosaurus weigh?” and “how are fossil sites protected? or “how are dinosaurs related to birds?” The answers may surprise you, as current research has disproved many commonly held beliefs about dinosaurs. There are plenty of photographs of fossils and colorful computer images of what different species may have looked like. Includes a glossary and an index.
