Dinosaur bones weren't always at the museum, so National Geographic Readers: Dinosaurs takes a look at where those bones came from.
Young readers will learn how bones were buried in rock for a long time, how paleontologists found the bones, brought the bones to museums, cleaned them, and put them together. But that's not all. They'll also learn that the biggest dinosaurs were the long-necked sauropods, and all birds are living dinosaurs.
This is just the book for your emerging reader who is fascinated by dinosaurs. And don't worry, all of their favorite dinosaurs make an appearance from T-Rex to Diplodocus to Triceratops to Stegosaurus. And if your dino-addict craves a dino-pet, National Geographic Readers: Dinosaurs has just the answer.
