Diplodocus—Gigantic Long-Necked Dinosaur

Series: I Like Dinosaurs!

By Michael W. Skrepnick

Meet the long-necked DIPLODOCUS! This dinosaur cracked its tail like a whip. It chomped plants all day long. It lived in large herds for safety. There is so much to learn about this dinosaur, and new readers will delight in learning about DIPLODOCUS and the other long-necked dinosaurs that lived millions of years ago. Spectacular color paintings, created by one of the world’s most respected and accomplished paleoartists, make this subject come to life. The simple text, along with Words to Know and phonetic spelling, makes this full-color book well suited for early readers.
