Scan and uncover the fossils of prehistoric beasts—and prepare to be astounded!

Scanorama: Dinosaurs gives young readers the feel of working as a lab technician as they study dinosaurs and other amazing prehistoric animals. Five movable sliders transform illustrated creatures—such as the deadly T. rex, the armored Ankylosaurus, and the massive Argentinosaurus—into virtual X-ray scans, revealing their fossilized skeletons. Detailed text, photographs, and illustrations provide insights into how each animal survived in the prehistoric world, and even more facts can be found under the interactive flaps throughout the book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for young dinosaur & prehistoric creaure lovers Their new series with a sliding scanorama in the book and some lift-the-flap features is packed with wonderful facts, images, and a categorization that takes the reader into thought provoking areas about the specifics of each book. In Scanorama: Dinosaurs and other Prehistoric Creatures The conservationist theme, as in the other Scanorama books, is moot because dinosaurs have been extinct for a long time. However, scientists have discovered fossils and based on these finds have reconstructed the dinosaur animal line quite effectively. In Scanorama a "fleshed-out" dinosaur is pictured but the sliding window reveals what we truly know about the dinosaurs - their bones. I did find one point in particular that raises concerns for me and that is the statement that has dinosaurs dying out completely prior to man's appearance on Earth. It is my understanding that fossil remains have been found showing a human footpring alongside a huge dinosaur footprint and this would indicate co-existence. Otherwise, I believe this book provides all those who love reading about dinosaurs a grand opportunity to find additional nuggets of information and wonderful illustrations to accompany them. A super addition to the home library and for those dinosaur lovers. The quality of these publications is really nice and sturdy. The lift-the-flap and slide/scan features reveal further and quite interesting information. The covers are dimensional adding touch-appeal. Designed for the seven year and up population, older readers will also find details and information new to them. Another addition to the home library and young reader's wish list.
