Not just another book about dinosaurs! This large, elegantly illustrated book includes greater details about the anatomy and physiology of familiar (and some less familiar) Jurassic species than most publications for this age group. That can help teachers and students make the leap from wonder to real lessons about structure and function in living things.

The book also includes actual activities and experiments to allow students to do more than just memorize facts about dinosaurs. The strength of their bones and the structure of their feathers are subjects for student investigation. Large, detailed pictures, inset diagrams, and informational boxes are all featured in the book's modern graphic layouts. That makes this NSTA/CBC Outstanding Trade Book a good one for a classroom center or individual reading. A good glossary and thorough index make it suitable for research as well.
