Get ready to go back in time with the Smithsonian—and experience life among the dinosaurs. Smithsonian Young Explorers: Dinosaurs provides the perfect introduction for kids 6 and up to the fascinating world of dinosaurs. The playful and informative fact book teaches kids how we learn about dinosaurs, how they are classified, and which dinosaurs ruled the land millions of years ago. Read about the mighty T. rex and the chicken-sized Compsognathus. Learn how scientists solved the mystery of the plates of the Stegosaurus. And find out which animals descended from dinosaurs surround us today.
Once young explorers have become paleontologists-in-training, they can continue their education by assembling the included dinosaur floor puzzle. The colorful puzzle and poster give kids extra opportunities to learn about the different dinosaurs and engage them in the sciences. And once kids are ready to go on the hunt for their own dinosaur bones, the book, puzzle, and map all tuck neatly into a snap-shut suitcase, ready to uncover the new greatest dinosaur that ever lived.
