From the tiny Archaeopteryx to the massive Brachiosaurus, dinosaurs have so much to teach us. With My First Book of Dinosaurs, kids will explore fascinating illustrations and tons of fun facts about the dinosaurs that existed in the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods.
Learn about how fossils are formed and found, and get an easy introduction to dinosaurs from the flying Archaeoptyerx to the spiky Ankylosaurus. (And not to fear–the Cat in the Hat will break the names down for easy pronunciation for kids and parents.)
Perfect for readers who are crazy about dinosaurs (or even just dino-nuggets) and for any kid who loves learning and science.
Have you ever wondered what the dinosaurs did for fun? What really happened when the Jurassic gang wanted to let off some steam? They danced, of course! They rocked and rolled, they twirled and tromped! They had themselves a Dinosaur Stomp!
With illustrations by Scott Nash that leap off the page like a raptor doing the fandango, Carol Diggory Shields tells dinosaur devotees all about reptilian revelry in verses with a foot-tapping, tail-whacking beat.
Theo TheSaurus is a little dino who loves words--the bigger the better! And he's determined to share that love with his new classmates in his new school, no matter that they don't understand him at first.
But when a trip to the athenaeum (also known as the library) becomes a visit to the auditorium instead, and a suggestion to play conceal-and-search (or hide-and-seek) only earns him looks of confusion, Theo realizes that misinterpretations can actually just be plain confusing!
It's only when his newfound friends find a way to show they care that Theo learns that sometimes, there are things more important than words.
