Books | Dinosaur Bones

The creator of Dem Bones digs up another set of rattling fine specimens for this splashy expedition into the world of fossils. A simple poem (“Dinosaurs are gone for good./ Maybe dinosaurs once lived in your neighborhood!”) serves as an umbrella framework for a lesson on prehistoric favorites. 

Barner shows each spotlighted dinosaur in both skeletal and living form, and two concluding spreads offer more information in a height chart and “dinometer” chart, fleshing out such questions as “What did it eat?” and “What does its footprint look like?” A splendid introduction to a perennially popular subject.
