The phenomenon of the dinosaur is one that continues to fascinate people of all ages. A fun-filled history of the many species of dinosaurs, their eras, and interesting facts about them, this book is not only informative, but funny and captivating as well. Featuring amusing and attractive illustrations, this unique edition discusses a variety of topics, from the Velociraptor and Pterodactylus to the Jurassic Era and dinosaur extinction.


"This wonderful book [has] hilarious, clever dinosaur poems that teach with wonderful knowledge and fun. It is truly unusual in that it presents so many different learning opportunities. The book takes rhyming poetry and matches it with adorable, funny and detailed illustrations while teaching modern thought and theories about dinosaurs." —

"A perfect blend of educational value and read-aloud fun, There Were Dinosaurs Everywhere! is highly recommended, especially for public and elementary school library children's collections." —Midwest Book Review
