If Dinosaurs Were Alive Today by Dougal Dixon

What would the world be like today is dinosaurs still roamed around? I know I would be scared to go outside! If Dinosaurs Were Alive Today doesn’t make that idea seem that scary. In fact, it compares dinosaurs to many of the animals that are alive today. In this interesting nonfiction book learn about animals in today’s world that are similar in size, appearance, and other characteristics to dinosaurs. The computer generated pictures do an excellent job in depicting these similarities. One picture is of a tiger attacking a Plateosaurus, another is a bear fighting for a fish with a giant crocodile, or a Quetzalcoatlus flying in the air with a small airplane. Check it out to explore all the other interesting and fun pictures. This book is sure to delight both boys and dinosaur lovers. There are numerous pages also that explain what life would be like for dinosaurs if they were still alive today, the theories for why they disappeared, and other random facts on dinosaurs. All said and done though, I’m glad I don’t have to worry about greeting a dinosaur when I go outside; seeing them in the zoo however, would be quite entertaining!
