I’m carrying on the dinosaur theme today. We are big fans of the What On Earth? series of books and I was super excited to learn about the launch of the new Explorer Dinosaurs! book aimed at children aged 7-11 years of age. Perfect for my almost 8 year old son to enjoy.
Explorer Dinosaurs! was published on 16th October and as part of the fun of this book, there is a chance to become a secret agent, and the first 100 agents who crack the hidden code within the book will win a portion of a Coprolite Fossil, aka petrified dinosaur poo. What more can you ask for? Well actually there’s so much more than that crammed inside Explorer Dinosaurs!
Join Agent Eagle as you look through the 175 pages tracing the history of the dinosaurs over 175 million years. My son was thrilled to discover that as early as 1676 in Oxfordshire large bones were being discovered that belonged to no animal known to man. It took until 1822 for those bones to be identified as being part of a Megalosaurus.
With the wonderful illustrations in Explorer Dinosaurs! assisting, we learn about how the dinosaurs grew, what they ate and where they lived.
The Cretaceous period was a time when dinosaurs really diversified and really did come in all shapes and sizes. Our family favourites, the T-Rex and Triceratops both come from this time.
Explorer Dinosaurs! also covers the death of the dinosaurs and what happened to wipe them off the face of the earth. Questions such as ‘were the dinosaurs too big’ and ‘did the dinosaurs freeze’ are covered in this book too.
As we’ve come to love with the What On Earth? series of books, Explorer Dinosaurs! comes with a fold out time line showing 100 different dinosaurs and where they fitted in across the various periods that the dinosaurs lived. The timeline can be removed from the book if you want to have it on a wall as a poster too.
We’re both really impressed with Explorer Dinosaurs!, it’s full of facts and written in a way children can understand easily. It’s a great addition to our collection and priced at £9.99 I can recommend it for any book shelf. I’ve included my Amazon Affiliate link below for your reference.
We are also looking forward to the release of further titles in the Explorer series over the coming months which will include Insects!, Plants! and Mammals!
