A unique children’s atlas that brings weird and wonderful prehistoric animals into your living room! It includes:

   • Each chapter explores a continent, showing where dinosaurs appeared at a given time.
   • Connects each dinosaur to a period — Triassic, Jurassic or Cretaceous.
   • Specially commissioned maps and 3D locator globes link the prehistoric world to the present-day.

Inside the pages of this children’s educational book, you’ll get to stare down a T-Rex in North America, watch out for Velociraptors' slashing claws in the Gobi Desert and trek across the Siberian tundra! You’ll also discover the answers to fascinating questions about dinosaurs. Which plant-eater weighed as much as five elephants? Where was mighty Tyrannosaurus the ultimate hunter?

Using specially commissioned maps, the dinosaur atlas for kids reveal the prehistoric world as never before! A modern 3D globe next to each map helps you understand the arrangement of the continents over time and why paleontologists find fossils where they do. The fully updated edition includes the most up-to-date theories and discoveries of dinosaur science, alongside stunning CGI illustrations and maps of all the major fossil sites around the world.
