About this book

All children are fascinated by dinosaurs, and World of Wonders: Dinosaurs is an ideal introduction to these wonderful creatures. In question-and-answer format, it addresses the key questions that children are likely to ask: What were dinosaurs? When did they live? What did they eat? Why did they die?

World of Wonders: Dinosaurs describes what is known of the life of the dinosaurs – how they gave birth, how they looked after their young – and how fossil evidence is gathered. It also describes the other great families of reptiles that lived at the same time: the marine plesiosaurs and ichthyosaurs, and the flying pterosaurs.

Magnificent full-colour pictures by Nick Hewetson almost leap off the page. Each is labelled with the correct scientific name of the animal, complete with a simple pronunciation guide. Two spreads have been designed with an acetate overlay to show internal structures. There is a 'true or false' quiz that runs through World of Wonders: Dinosaurs, with answers given at the end, to make it truly interactive. The glossary and index encourage children to use World of Wonders: Dinosaurs as an educational resource.
