Among an overwhelming selection of dinosaur books, this is the very first to offer children ages 7 to 10 complete coverage of all the known dinosaurs. Don Lessem, author of more than 60 books—most of them about dinosaurs—teams up with Franco Tempesta, a talented illustrator with a fresh and appealing style. The exciting result is an accessible, visually stunning book that's packed with facts that kids can use to impress their friends and families.


The Ultimate Dinopedia is organized by the periods that are well known to young enthusiasts: Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous. It includes every dinosaur ever discovered, and highlights 125 species that scientists know sufficiently to describe in rich detail. Special features include "How We Know What They Looked Like?", "Baby Dinosaurs," "Great Dinosaur Goofs," and much more. Every featured dino gets a fact box that delivers important information at a glance: scientific name, discoverer, place and date of discovery, length, habitat, diet, fossils, fun facts, and range map. This book provides—in fabulously illustrated, kid-friendly form—all the information an 8-year-old fact hound needs to lord that knowledge over parents and teachers!

Comments about The Ultimate Dinopedia:

Some information contradicts information that we received from other books. There was only a few pages on each dinosaur, maybe due to number of dinosaurs or lower level reading??? It has vivid pictures of each dinosaur. This book is a good book to add to a family library.
