Who doesn’t dig dinosaurs? Lots of readers love learning as much as they can about dinosaurs and National Geographic Kids loves sharing information, photos and true accounts of experts and their love of all things regarding dinosaurs. Readers of all ages will learn, with this handy guide, how dinosaurs lived, ruled, evolved and what came after they were gone.

Have you wondered how the T-Rex used his tiny arms? Did you know that they were so strong the T-Rex could lift up to 400 pounds with them? We are all familiar with some of the biggest dinosaurs that walked upon the earth, but what were some of the smaller ones? The Microraptor was small like a bird and was thought to be able to fly. The Compsognathus was the size of a chicken and would run fast to catch lizards to eat. The Saltopus was the size of a cat and scientist guessed it could hop. Its nick name was hopping foot. Have you ever seen the dinosaur family tree? This guide has a very informative one inside these pages. It was an asteroid that killed the dinosaurs. Perhaps they would still be here if that asteroid landed on some other planet.

This guide may be small in size, but it certainly packs a punch with loads of information on how to dig, hunt for fossils, how they raised their young, why some were big and some were small and even words from National Geographic Explorer Steve Brusatte. Parents and teachers could use this guide at home or in the classroom. Its small size makes it great for travel while on vacation. The back pages have a pronunciation guide and a list of more resources for the readers who are eager to learn more about these amazing creatures that once walked the earth.
