Gigantic dinosaurs, tiny dinos, dinosaurs of every size: they're gathered here for a big parade and kids are invited to join in the fun! These endlessly fascinating prehistoric creatures may have vanished from the Earth more than 60 million years ago, but this large-format picture book shows what it might be like to stand next to a real, live dinosaur. Colorful illustrations capture a happy procession of children marching alongside an array of dinosaurs; with just one look, young readers can put the relative sizes of human and beast in perspective--instantly making dinosaurs accessible.
Dinosaur Parade answers all those endless questions, too: a simple rhyming text introduces nine well-known dinosaur groups, from Sauropods to Therizinosaurs. Children eager to learn more can delve into fascinating facts about over 60 dinosaurs at the bottom of the each page including their names, when they lived, and where they were found. The information is fabulous--but the contagiously joyful, festive feeling every picture conveys is even better!

Booklist Review: "Dinosaurs: they're dead, which is no fun at all. What would be fun, however, is imagining the giant beasts being led in a circus-style march for our amusement: So just for fun, we'll say they stayed and joined a Dinosaur Parade. This simple but informative reference book uses a consistent two-page template for each subset of dinosaur, with the creatures filing by on the top portion of the page while the accompanying name, pronunciation, size, era, location, and date of discovery are listed below. Each spread kicks off with a humorous rhyme ( When banging noggins was the rule, fancy skulls made hard heads cool ), and the dinosaurs pictured are hardly grim killing machines each is drawn with a placid, even happy expression; the fearless multicultural group of children cavorting among them gives readers a sense of scale. The last spread is a bit of surprise, and features a paleontologist, some mini homo sapiens, and a special guest from Hogwarts. Dino lovers will make good use of the glossary concluding the book.--Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2008 Booklist"
