About the Book
Here is everything the youngest reader needs to know about dinosaurs!

Dinosaurs ruled Earth for millions of years. Some were small and could run very, very fast. Others were big and were covered in spikes and plates for protection. And some were huge, terrifying other dinosaurs with their long, sharp teeth. Today, paleontologists piece together fossilized dinosaur skeletons and study ancient dinosaur footprints to learn more about how these amazing creatures lived.

Perfect for very young paleontologists, Gibbons's simple yet informative text and vividly detailed illustrations depict the most up-to-date information available about these magnificent creatures.

“Gail Gibbons has taught more preschoolers and early readers about the world than any other children’s writer-illustrator."—The Washington Post
