Tarrytown, NY : Marshall Cavendish Children, c2009
The best dinosaur book for little guys (and girls) that I have found. Beautiful full-spread illustrations. Two pages will show the dinosaur skeleton against a white background. The only text is the dinosaurs scientific name as well as the meaning of that name. These are printed in large child-friendly text.
Turn the page and the next double-spread is a colorful scene including the dinosaur with his skin on surrounded by plants and fellow dinosaurs. No text on these pages. This pattern continues throughout the book, introducing several different dinosaurs. A fun book heartily enjoyed by my three-year-old son.
