Dinosaurs: 400 Words for Budding Paleontologists

We rated this book:


Even though the dinosaur Huehuecanauhtlus is not included in this new dictionary of dinosaurs from Meriam-Webster, nearly every other species and description can found in this small but packed kid’s dictionary. There are four hundred words for budding paleontologists. There are habitat descriptions and dinosaurs’ anatomical features, along with the evolution of the Earth and the land forms that made the rise of the dinosaurs possible.

Almost every child is fascinated by the large creatures who ruled the world for millions of years. It is stunning that we can learn so much about creatures who lived over two hundred and forty million years ago. This book features a glossary in the back for easy reference and illustrations of just about everything from mandibles to coprolites. I thought I had learned quite a bit of dinosaur lore from my child’s interest; however, this volume taught me so much more about the interesting creatures and their world. This is a fun book to read along with your child.
