Age of the Dinosaur by Steve Parker


Age of the Dinosaur by Steve Parker

Age of the Dinosaur is a great first book about dinosaurs and the world in which they lived. Travel to prehistoric lagoons and ancient forests and explore life on Earth millions of years ago. Discover what the planet's climate and environment were like and how they evolved. Learn some bite-size facts about the different types of dinosaurs and the many animals and plants that shared their world, and find out how we know all this. How scientists find and study fossils is also revealed. Packed with exciting prehistoric puzzles and games as well as eye-catching photographs of specimens from the Museum's amazing palaeontological collections, this is a fun and fact-filled introduction to these incredible creatures for budding palaeontologists. The book is fully checked and approved by a Museum dinosaur expert, and is published to tie in with a major new exhibition of the same name which opens at the Natural History Museum in April 2011.
