Another in the Disney Wonderful World series of picture books that introduce children to nature, Earth, sharks, space and animals, this well illustrated book delves into the dinosaur. Utilizing characters from Disney/Pixar productions to guide the reader throughout, the text is designed around answering a series of general questions.

'Are dinosaurs related to crocodiles and alligators? What is the Mesozoic? How do dino bones and teeth become fossils? Did the stegosaurus really have two brains?'

This is just a sampling of the kinds of questions you'll discover the answers to as you page through this book. Usually there are three questions on each two-page spread plus illustrations. This may seem to be a rather haphazard approach to the subject, but it will pique a child's interest and more than likely get the youngster wanting to find out more about these awesome prehistoric creatures.

An inexpensive way to move from simple picture books to more information laden material about the dinosaur, this is an attractive package that offers more depth without overwhelming the child.
