Where did dinosaurs come from?

Where Did Dinosaurs Come From? (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 2)Children can't get enough dinosaur books, so Kathleen Weidner Zoehfeld has come to the rescue with Where Did Dinosaurs Come From? (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 2)

There are many mysteries when it comes to dinosaurs, but possibly the biggest is... Where did dinosaurs come from? To find out, Zoehfeld looks way back in time. Children will be fascinated as they discover fossils--the earliest fossils from creatures that lived in the sea, the first backboned animals, and mammal relatives. They'll also enjoy venturing through the Triassic period to the Jurassic to the Cretaceous. Young readers will explore why early mammal relatives couldn't have been dinosaur ancestors and they'll dive into some of the important features all early meat-eating dinosaurs had. And don't forget about the first plant-eating dinosaurs who are covered as well.

This is a wonderful addition to any dinosaur lover's collection. The pastel illustrations will leave you in awe of these creatures who lived long ago and the informative text will have young minds trying to uncover one of the biggest mysteries of all.
