Everything you ever wanted to know about dinosaurs is in this giant book. It has all the types of dinosaurs and realistic pictures of them on every page. This book is every dino-lovers dream come true. It has fun facts, information about what they ate, and physical qualities about them such as they were huge and strong, but slow runners.
There is even questions that come with the chapters for readers to think about. For example: "Can you see better with one eye open or both?" This simple question

This is a fantastic informational book about dinosaurs for children. I love how this book has been designed. Even though it is for little kids, it includes a table of contents, index, page numbers, a map, and a glossary. These are all book orientation concepts that young children need to learn and are not found in many young children's books. This book is organized by the size of the dinosaur which I think works best for little ones. It contains full page renditions of what paleontologists belie ...more

Nonfiction Text: Little Kids First Big book of Dinosaurs, Copyright 2011. This book included a category of the different sizes of dinosaurs. On each page it described how the dinosaur lived and what they ate. The book also did a great job showing the size compared to a human body. I would pair this with the twin text How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight, by Jane Yolen. This is a twin text because it is a cute story about multiple different types of dinosaurs and them going to sleep. By a child reading ...more

Absolutely awesome book. The dinosaurs are organized into categories of small, big, giant, and gigantic. Each two page spread features a different dinosaur including a picture (drawing) with habitat, a one sentence overview of the dino (e.g. "Diplodocus was very long."), 2-3 paragraphs with more info, a little box with the time period (e.g. "late Jurassic") and diet (e.g. "plants") and shadow outline comparing the dinosaur size with a person size, plus a question for a kid to answer (e.g. "What ...more

First non-narrative that the 3-year old could really get into. She especially loves the diagram on each page showing the dinosaur's size relative to a human.
