How Big Were Dinosaurs?

howbigweredinosaursWritten and Illustrated by Lita Judge

This is another great book about dinosaurs, if there is a space on the shelf. If not, make one! Large two page illustrations compare size to current day animals and objects, and also list other fun information that this age group would relate to. There is a double foldout page in the back showing all the dinosaurs spotlighted and size comparisons. In a school library the foldout is more difficult to keep in good condition. This is a super book, especially for the lower grade’s interests. A follow up to the Museum of Ancient Life at Thanksgiving Point would complete this book.
