This amazing find taught them a lot about the Saltasaurus, a medium-sized dinosaur whose babies were smaller than their footprints. The Argentinosaurus, one of the largest dinosaurs, may have "weighed as much as 17 elephants." Their babies "barely reached [their] mother's toes." In this book you will learn about many dinosaur species and will learn how their tiny babies, if they survived, grew to be giants like their parents. You will learn about the Argentinosaurus, the Hypacrosaurus, the Maiasura, the Oviraptor, the Psittacosaurus, the Troodon, the Saltasaurs, and the Tyrannosaurus Rex. Did you know that some scientists think that not all dinos are extinct?!
This book is a marvelous learning experience for the young dino lover. There are many fun books that fictionalize the life of dinosaurs and then there are many that gloss over the early life of the dinosaur. I found this one to be very interesting because we see several different types of dinosaurs when they we hatchlings. The fascinating illustrations point out their vulnerability and illustrate their comparative size next to their parents and other creatures.Read more ›
Dinosaurs laid eggs to create other dinosaurs. No one disputes that fact. So exactly how does a creature that weighs as much as 17 elephants care for a baby only just a bit larger than its toes? What dangers do such babies face? How could they survive? Were there dinosaurs that tended to their young? How did they keep them warm? Fed? Safe? With gorgeous watercolor renderings, author/illustrator Lita Judge sets out to answer these questions, and to educate not just kids who may not know these facts, but the adult gate-keepers as well.Read more ›
