Some history about the discover of some of the first dinosaur fossils and time periods which dinosaurs are found. No helpful pronunciation guide for the more difficult dinosaur names. Helpful information about how scientists revise their ideas of what dinosaurs look like based on discoveries and new information.
This gave good information about the discovery of dinosaurs.

This too, is a good book for beginning informational readers. This book is all about dinosaurs, and right up any young reader's alley. The reader will learn all about fossils and how they are preserved, when they were first found, and what scientists have gathered from their findings. This book also includes informative pictures, with captions that provide detailed explanations about each picture.
