Imagine that you could travel around the world seeing history unfold…. welcome to the Dinosaur Atlas. A wonderful book of unfolding pages and lift that flaps to delight and inform. This is seriously a great book for the dinosaur lovers among us, it is so packed with information.
The Dinosaur Atlas comes with facts to amaze you, fold-out maps, lift the flaps curiousities and life-size fossils. Lonely Planet Kids worked to make this an informative book to delight as you walk your way through the pages. In the middle of the book we are treated to a photograph containing the actual size jaws of a Anhanguera which lived in Brazil.
Each of the pages folds out to present even more information, and the pages are printed on a heavy stock paper… thte quality of board paper. Sometimes they included lift the flap pages. Regardless of how the information is presented, you’ll be surprised at the sheer amount you learn… like did you know there were dinosaurs who shrank due to living on a small island? Or that there were dinosaurs that had scales and feathers? Or even that dinosaurs have been discovered in Madagascar? I KNOW.. tons of information, some of the facts caught me off guard, others were like old friends reminding me of their presence.
Maps contained through the book told the story of where these dinosaurs came from. Dinosaurs have been found on every continent… even Antarctica!
Though many of the drawing were illustrations, some photos are included as well. Dinosaurs and all the information surrounding them are brought to life.
