The Ultimate Dinopedia


The Ultimate Dinopedia
Nat Geo Kids series
by Don Lessem
illustrated by Franco Tempesta

Subtitled 'The Most Complete Dinosaur Reference Ever', this book is in a class of its own! Tempesta's oversized illustrations seem to jump off the page and spring to life and Lessem's text is engaging, clearly written, and perfectly tuned into this age groups' interests and common questions. Readers learn basics about dinosaurs, then specifics about a handful of dinosaurs.

"Books on this topic are certainly nothing new, but Lessem’s comprehensive overview will satisfy the interested browser as much as the ardent dinosaur enthusiast." (Booklist, starred)
