McMillan Palgrave

Explorers are designed to stimulate readers in the early elementary grades (ages 6–8), who are beginning to exercise wider reading, research and cross-referencing skills. They can be read from page to page, or – as a fun extra element – the reader can follow special ‘page links' to access information on related topics. Six fabulous artwork scenes are each followed up with photographic information spreads, which provide extra detail and background.

Explorers: Dinosaurs - by Dougal Dixon, illustrated by Peter Bull - is a time-travelling adventure, visiting these favourite prehistoric creatures – from huge, gentle vegetarians to dynamic pack-hunters and spectacular, bloodthirsty predators.

& Taylor

Describes various kinds of dinosaurs, including Parasaurolophus, Allosaurus, and Ornitholestes, and discusses how dinosaurs hunted, their life cycle, and how paleontologists learn about them.

My favorite part was learning about the velociraraptor. Other people should read it because it is cool. Zach, age 7.
