Amazing Giant Dinosaurs

Amazing Giant Dinosaurs
By Marie Greenwood
DK, 2012. 15 pages. Nonfiction.

True to its title, this book is amazing! It is a sturdy, lift-the flap book with information on some dinosaurs that are not so commonly known: Barosaurus, Giganotosaurus, Stegosaurus, Corythosaurus, Suchomimus, Euoplocephalus, and Pentaceratops. Helpfully, there are pronunciation guides on every page! There are simple maps showing where they lived, and photographs depicting how their environments look today. The bright, colorful illustrations of each dinosaur are a fun comparison to the photos of their unearthed skeletons. Some unique features of this dino book are the dinner menus for fish, veggie, or meat eaters, and how each species compares in size to humans.
