Synopsis

National Geographic Kids Ultimate Dinopedia The Most Complete Dinosaur Reference Ever by Don Lessem

In the crowded field of dinosaur books, this is the very first to offer children ages 7 to 10-those at the height of their enthusiasm for the prehistoric giants-complete coverage of all the known dinosaurs. Don Lessem, author of more than 60 books-most of them about dinosaurs-teams up with Franco Tempesta, a talented illustrator with a fresh and appealing style. The exciting result is an accessible, visually stunning book that's packed with facts that kids can use to impress their friends and families. The Ultimate Dinopedia is organized by the periods that are well known to young enthusiasts: Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous. It includes almost every dinosaur ever discovered, and highlights 125 species that scientists know sufficiently to describe in rich detail. Special features include How We Know What They Looked Like, Baby Dinosaurs, Great Dinosaur Goofs, and much more. Every featured dino gets a fact box that delivers important information at a glance-Scientific Name, Discoverer, Place and Date of Discovery, Length, Habitat, Diet, Fossils, Fun Facts, and Range Map. This book provides-in fabulously illustrated, kid-friendly form-all the information an 8-year-old fact hound needs to lord that knowledge over parents and teachers!

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.
