Illustrations and Drawings of Dinosaurs

The thirty-two pages contain a large number of illustrations and drawings of dinosaurs, marine reptiles and flying reptiles (pterosaurs) and each section is written in a question and answer format  A question is presented in bold text and immediately below it an answer paragraph has been provided.  Running along the top of each page is a mural-like section that provides more information about the animals featured on that specific page.

This book contains questions such as what did dinosaurs eat, are there any fossil birds, did dinosaurs have babies and what colour were the eyes of dinosaurs?  These are the sort of questions that children from four years and upwards ask and this book provides them with a ready source of answers .

The demise of the Dinosauria is particularly well covered.  In the last part of the book the extinction of the Dinosauria and other animals at the end of the Cretaceous geological period is discussed.  A number of possible theories for the mass extinction are put forward and the evidence for an extraterrestrial impact such as an asteroid strike is explained in child-friendly, simple terms.  There is even a handy dinosaur and prehistoric animal index presented on the last page, although it would have been helpful to have had a name pronunciation guide provided as well to help young readers tackle the long and often complicated dinosaur names.
