Overview

How did those enormous dinosaur skeletons get inside the museum?

Long ago, dinosaurs ruled the Earth. Then, suddenly, they died out. For thousands of years, no one knew these giant creatures had ever existed. Then people began finding fossils—bones and teeth and footprints that had turned to stone. Today, teams of experts work together to dig dinosaur fossils out of the ground, bone by fragile bone. Then they put the skeletons together again inside museums, to look just like the dinosaurs of millions of years ago.

Great information, its filled with text but then inner dialogue like a comic book between the characters within the book.

The book starts out visiting a dinosaur museum. It then goes to explain how and where dinosaurs skeletons are found. It talks about how bones are fossil imprints that are dug out of the ground. It explains how scientist learn about the different dinosaurs from their bones and how they put the bones together to make a life size dinosaur that you see in museums. I think this was one of the best easy-reading informational dinosaur book I have seen. It was simply written, where any age group would understand and learn about dinosaurs and the scientist that find their bones. The pictures were set up like comic book pages. It was fun to read and most importantly, easy to read and learn. I would try to find fossil imprints to use for making clay fossil imprints or have the students make hand-made bones out of clay. Then bury the fossils bones in a sand box and let the children carefully dig the fossil bones out and dust them off, just like scientist do.
