Children would have many questions to ask dinosaurs, if they could. Could dinosaurs swim? Could they fly? How fast could they run? What noises did they make? Why don’t pictures of dinosaurs show their ears – or did they have ears? What type of dinosaur was the smallest? The largest? The heaviest? And why did the dinosaurs disappear from the earth?
Easy-to-understand answers to these questions can be found in Ask a Dinosaur. Children, who are so often fascinated by these creatures, will discover that from what scientists know now, it appears that the sauropods were the biggest and heaviest dinosaurs – they weighed as much as three elephants, and the ground shook when they walked! Another very large dinosaur, the therizinosaurus, sported claws which were three feet (ninety cm) each! And the smallest dinosaur that’s been discovered by scientists is the mussaurus, which appears to have been no longer than a pencil, and just as slender.
The colourful illustrations, carefully-chosen facts and vocabulary, and a helpful glossary, have resulted in a book which would be very suitable for young dinosaur fans as well as for school-age readers.
A note to the curious: Dinosaurs had holes in the sides of their heads, and their ears were inside these holes, similar to birds.
