Creature Features: Dinosaurs

(1 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Big Picture Press

Millions of years ago, dinosaurs roamed the Earth: ancient reptiles with horns, sharp teeth and long necks. Around them lived the flying pterosaurs, the marine reptiles and the small furry mammals. Yet a lot of different types of creature shared the same features, whether that was terrifying teeth (T Rex had teeth the size of bananas but Helicoprion - a shark-like creature - had teeth that were like spirals), amazing armour (Ankylosaurus had armoured eyelids) or super sails and spines (the aptly-named Spinosaurus had a spiny sail two metres tall).

The Creature Features series is a really great one for younger readers who will be entertained by its colourful illustrations and enjoy spotting all the different dinosaurs. Dinosaur names can be quite long and difficult so a bit of help might be needed there, but there’s a lot to talk about in terms of seeing things that are similar and different between creatures and picking out favourites.
