Dino Explorers

Age Level: 8–10  Grade Level: 3–5

Most people probably consider the terrifying Tyrannosaurus rex the king of the dinosaurs. It does, after all, have the Latin word for "king" in its name. However, the largest of the carnivorous dinosaurs was the crocodilian-snouted Spinosaurus, which lived 105 million years ago. Bright, colorful illustrations accompanied by fact boxes pointing to each dinosaur's specific physical characteristics enhance the engaging texts. Dinosaur Profiles provide statistics such as height, length, weight, and the time period in which the dinosaur existed in a visually appealing and highly accessible format. Full-color and black-and-white photographs of skeletons, nests, claws, and teeth show readers what paleontologists study to determine how these long-dead animals lived.
