Pet-sized DinosBook - 2009
Scientists have found the bones of many small, pet-sized dinosaurs. Some of them, such as Sinosauropteryx (sine-oh-sor-OP-tur-iks), had fuzzy feathers. Did the feathers help it fly? Answer: No. Scientists think that the feathers on Sinosauropteryx helped keep it warm instead. This is just one of the many fascinating facts kids will discover as they learn all about the smallest creatures of the dinosaur age. Pet-sized Dinos uses an engaging question-and-answer format that makes reading fun for emergent and early readers. With large, full-color illustrations, a fascinating "Fact Box" on every two-page spread, and grade-appropriate text, this book is sure to be a hit with all young dinosaur fans.
