The Lovereading4Kids comment

A brilliant A-Z of 142 dinosaurs together with a CD from which you can print out lots of different dinosaur images along with lots of info on each of them. The book will transport you back in time so you can meet dinosaurs that ruled the Earth for 165 million years. You’ll find out what the world in the time of the dinosaurs was like, learn how to hunt for dinosaur fossils plus find out which was the smallest and which was the biggest dinosaur. With up-to-the-minute scientific discoveries, theories and breathroughs and exciting timelines, track the dinosaurs from the first one to extinction. Reptiles of the land, the sea and the air are all featured including the sea-living dinosaur, the fossil of which has recently been discovered on the Jurassic coastline of southern England.

There is also a Children’s Encyclopedia of Earth in the same Templar ‘Insiders’ series and an Atlas of the Universe too.

Packed with facts, presented in an easy-to-read text, fact panels, labels, captions and diagrams, this series can be pored over - no details are left unexplained, no rock unturned. Using the glossary, index and timelines, these books are pefect for research and discovery, but also make fascinating reads from cover to cover.

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.
