The Kingfisher First Dinosaur Picture Atlas by David Burnie

This is the perfect first atlas series for young children, illustrated by Smarties Award winning artist Anthony Lewis. The atlases are ideal for use at home and at school.The atlas is organized by continent, and each map is illustrated with colourful pictorial icons showing the different dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures that lived there. Feature spreads then detail one or more of the dinosaurs from that area, giving an in-depth look at the animals that made their home there. Each map includes a simple numbered and lettered grid.
