The Lovereading4Kids comment

A book to treasure, this is an in-depth look at the creatures of the pre-historic world with stunning, carefully drawn illustrations capturing the details of how they would have looked. Much of the geology and biology of the planet from the very earliest moments of its creation has now been reconstructed. From this evidence the detailed texts and beautiful illustrations have been created. The special characteristics of the creatures of the sea, land and air are all included. Taken together, they give an amazing account of the earliest life on earth.

Synopsis

Children's Dinosaur and Prehistorical Animal Encyclopedia A Comprehensive Look at the Prehistoric World with Hundreds of Superb Illustrations by Douglas Palmer

Which were the first animals to walk on land? Which dinosaur had a 24ft long neck? This is a stunning new encyclopedia about the most amazing animals ever to have roamed the Earth. Including special features on the world in which the dinosaurs lived whilst also tracing the relationships between these creatures. Focus pages look at dinosaur behaviour and explain why they are now extinct.

Reviews

'Natural history geeks won't find a better compendium than this new encyclopedia of dinosaurs: a comprehensive book packed with superb illustrations and no-holes-barred bared teeth and gore to boot. If they already know their Triassic from their Jurassic, don't settle for less detail than this.'

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
