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? It 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 the book, with answers given at the end, to make it truly interactive.
The glossary and index encourage children to use the book as an educational resource.
