About this product
- DescriptionWhat would it have been like to be a disaur baby long, long ago? Every boy and girl dreams of seeing a disaur . . . but what about BEING one? Maybe a baby with Tyransaurus Rex as a mom? Or a gentler giant who preferred munching leaves? With lots of fascinating facts and striking illustrations that recreate a lost world millions of years old, Isabella Brooklyn and Haude Levesque guide young readers into the prehistoric era to find out. Because scientists never had the chance to study a live disaur in its natural environment, they can't kw for sure what kind of parents disaurs were, or exactly how they raised their young. But by following the clues they dig up, and using the latest in medical techlogy, paleontologists can make educated guesses, and offer an exciting glimpse into what it might have been like to be a disaur child. Kids will meet disaurs of every type, from theropods and sauropodomorphs with their grasping, asymmetrical fingers to good mother Maiasaurus and Psittacosaurus babies who had nannies --adults that raised all the children in the group. There's also a hint of what the future of disaur studies will be, thanks to techlogy unimaginable only a few years ago.
- Author BiographyIsabella Brooklyn has loved dinosaurs since her first visit to the American Museum of Natural History. She spent many summers digging for dinosaur bones and settling for bottle caps, pennies, and once, a dead mouse. She lives outside of Philadelphia with her three children.
