Discover the fascinating world of prehistoric life with this children’s book that includes an introduction to paleontology and a guide to dinosaurs.
Dinosaurs are as mysterious as they are captivating. Children hunger to better understand them. Become a young paleontologist. Learn all about the Mesozoic Era. James Kuether, an acclaimed paleoartist, presents a kids’ introduction to paleontology. From some of the earliest predators, like rauisuchians, to the most famous dinosaurs, such as Tyrannosaurus rex, this comprehensive book provides the information that kids want to know.
Dinosaurs for Kids starts with an introduction to fossils and an explanation of what makes an animal a “dinosaur.” Then it guides readers through the history of plant- and animal-life in the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods. The book further discusses types of dinosaurs and how they lived. In the field-guide section, 150 species are organized by type. James’s incredibly lifelike paleoart (digital reconstructions of extinct animals) portrays the dinosaurs as they may have appeared, and his text offers glimpses into their amazing lives, based on the latest information in dinosaur science.
