If you know a youngster who asks a lot of questions about dinosaurs,
here is a picture book with a lot of answers. The text consists of a
single-sentence question followed by a one- or two- paragraph answer.
The questions cover some of the more typical questions any youngster
might ask, such as: What is a dinosaur? How big were they? Were
dinosaurs smart? How fast could they run? What color were they? What did
they sound like? How were baby dinosaurs born? How long could a dinosaur
live? Could dinosaurs fly? What happened to them? Where do scientists
find dinosaur bones? What can these bones tell us?

Gordon Sauvé’s lovely full-color illustrations are sure to please
dinosaur fans of all ages. For those who find dinosaur names a tad
tricky on the tongue, a glossary included at the back of the book
explains what the dino’s name means and how to pronounce it. Highly
