Overview

What would it have been like to be a dinosaur baby long, long ago?

Every boy and girl dreams of seeing a dinosaur . . . but what about BEING one? Maybe a baby with Tyrannosaurus Rex as a mom? Or a gentler giant who preferred munching leaves? With lots of fascinating facts and striking illustrations that recreate a lost world millions of years old, Isabella Brooklyn and Haude Levesque guide young readers into the prehistoric era to find out.

Because scientists never had the chance to study a live dinosaur in its natural environment, they can't know for sure what kind of parents dinosaurs were, or exactly how they raised their young. But by following the clues they dig up, and using the latest in medical technology, paleontologists can make educated guesses, and offer an exciting glimpse into what it might have been like to be a dinosaur child.

Kids will meet dinosaurs of every type, from theropods and sauropodomorphs with their grasping, asymmetrical fingers to "good mother" Maiasaurus and Psittacosaurus babies who had "nannies"--adults that raised all the children in the group.

There's also a hint of what the future of dinosaur studies will be, thanks to technology unimaginable only a few years ago.
