About this book

A dinosaur reference for children ages 7-10, The National Geographic Kids Ultimate Dinopedia includes every dinosaur ever discovered (some are known by only a single tooth or bone) and will feature 75 dinosaurs that scientists have sufficient information about to go into detail. The book is broken into sections by period: Triassic, Jurassic, Cretaceous. It will include spreads on individual dinosaurs, features such as How We Know What They Looked Like, Baby Dinosaurs, How We Know How They Acted, Dinosaur Discoverers, Great Dinosaur Goofs, How a Fossil Is Made, and Things We Might Never Know About Dinosaurs.

Every dinosaur also has a fact box including information such as Scientific name, Discoverer, Length, Place and date of discovery (or discoveries), Habitat, Diet, Fossils, Fun Facts, and Range Map. In short, The National Geographic Kids Ultimate Dinopedia will include everything an 8-year-old fact hound needs to lord it over his parents and teachers, all beautifully and accessibly presented.
