If you’re a dinosaur fan looking for a book with lots of facts about dinosaurs, but in a way that you can see real, live dinosaurs on the page and in descriptive words, then I suggest that you take a peek at Dinosaurology: The Search for a Lost World. Even though it’s packed with information and descriptions that make you feel like you were there, watching it all happen, I would suggest this book for people aged 8+, considering there are some hard words in the book.
This book is pretty much part fact and part fiction, so I’m going to start out by showing you some ways the facts were laid out in the book. The book had flaps and little books attached to the inside of it that you can open, each with more facts. Some of the flaps and books described what dinosaurs looked like, while others described the dinosaur’s habitats.
As I said before, this book is basically part fact and part fiction, so now I’m going to tell you about the fiction part of the story. The book
tells us about a trip to the mythical island of Yannapalu, where dinosaurs are said to still roam – living, breathing replicas of the fossils that show us so much about what life was like so many years ago. But a place like Yannapalu couldn’t really exist in real life – or could it?
I really enjoyed this book because it describes a lot about dinosaurs and their natural habitats, but in a way that you feel like you are there, watching it all happen. It has so many facts, considering most of it is in “journal style”, like the book is someone’s journal that they were taking notes in on the trip. So if you like dinos, and reading, take a peek at Dinosaurology: The Search for a Lost World.
