Synopsis

Dinosaurs by Dougal Dixon

Explorers are designed to stimulate readers in the early elementary grades (ages 7-10), who are beginning to exercise wider reading, research and cross-referencing skills. They can be read from page to page, or - as a fun extra element - the reader can follow special 'page links' to access information on related topics. Six fabulous artwork scenes are each followed up with photographic information spreads, which provide extra detail and background. In Dinosaurs, readers set out on a time-traveling adventure through six prehistoric narrative scenes that cover everything from the gentle giants to the bloodthirsty predators and along the way examine what dinosaurs looked like, where they lived, what they ate, and why they disappeared.
