In the crowded field of dinosaur books, this is the very first to offer children ages 7 to 10—those at the height of their enthusiasm for the prehistoric giants—complete coverage of all the known dinosaurs.
Don Lessem, author of more than 60 books—most of them about dinosaurs—teams up with Franco Tempesta, a talented illustrator with a fresh and appealing style. The exciting result is an accessible, visually stunning book that’s packed with facts that kids can use to impress their friends and families.
The Ultimate Dinopedia is organized by the periods that are well known to young enthusiasts: Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous. It includes almost every dinosaur ever discovered, and highlights 125 species that scientists know sufficiently to describe in rich detail. Special features include How We Know What They Looked Like, Baby Dinosaurs, Great Dinosaur Goofs, and much more. Every featured dino gets a fact box that delivers important information at a glance—Scientific Name, Discoverer, Place and Date of Discovery, Length, Habitat, Diet, Fossils, Fun Facts, and Range Map. This book provides—in fabulously illustrated, kid-friendly form—all the information an 8-year-old fact hound needs to lord that knowledge over parents and teachers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Choice! My 6 yr old grandson is a dinosaur nut, but he's an advanced reader, and the usual picture books aimed at him were just not detailed enough. He LOVES this book, insisted on taking it to school with him the day he received it, and is already mastering the names of dinosaurs he'd never heard of before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "It's awesome" That is my daughter's opinion of this book. She says everything about it is awesome - the information, pictures - all of it. And she's been through a lot of dino books.
