Did Dinosaurs Lay Eggs? by Steve Parker

This book also deals with other questions and answers about prehistoric reptiles. Did dinosaurs go swimming, live in groups, have wings, eat grass, tower over trees, or talk to each other? Children are fascinated by dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures, and this book will answer all of the questions they most frequently ask. Steve Parker's simple and informative text explains every aspect of dinosaur existence, while Graham Rosewarne's stunning illustrations bring over 60 of these magnificent beasts back to life. This is the perfect introduction for 5- to 8-year-olds to the fascinating and extraordinary age of the dinosaurs. Would you like a pet dinosaur? A small one might seem cute and friendly...but what would it eat? Should you take it for walks? Dinosaurs lived a very long time ago. Their world was very different to the one in which we live today. We know about prehistoric creatures mainly from their fossils - bones, teeth and other remains, preserved in the rocks. Fossils tell us that some dinosaurs were big, others small. Some ate plants, others meat. The females laid eggs - probably. How did dinosaurs die out? Could they ever return?The answers to these and many other questions can be found in this fascinating book.
