Meet the Microraptor, a feathered glider weighing less than four pounds. Read about Micropachycephalosaurus, a small mystery dinosaur about which scientists know almost nothing. Meet Pentaceratops, a big dinosaur with five horns on its head and a frill around the back of its head. Then meet Pachycephalosaurus, a big dinosaur with a thick head that ate leaves, seeds, and fruit.

If you want to know about even bigger dinosaurs, read about Tsintaosaurus, a dinosaur with a unicorn skull formed by one long bone sticking out from its forehead. Or read about Acrocanthosaurus, a giant dinosaur with eye ridges and thirty-eight sharp teeth in its upper jaw; it was one of the biggest meat-eating dinosaurs. Or learn about a Rebbachisaurus, a gigantic African dinosaur with a big ridge on its back. Discover the long-necked Mamenchisaurus, a gigantic dinosaur with a neck as long as five or six giraffe necks.

If you were a dinosaur, which dinosaur in this book would you want to be?

Divided into four sections, this National Geographic Kids book introduces young readers to fifty-two different dinosaurs, grouped by size. Dinosaur-loving readers can learn about Small Dinosaurs, Big Dinosaurs, Giant Dinosaurs, and Gigantic Dinosaurs. Each entry includes Dino Facts, information on what we now know about the dinosaur, the pronunciation of the dinosaur’s name, and dinosaur art.

Also included: Parent Tips, a Dinosaur Map, and a Glossary.

This treasure-trove of dinosaur facts is sure to please all dinosaur-loving young readers.

Highly recommended.
