Summary

Everyone knows that Tyrannosaurus rex is the huge dinosaur with sharp claws and tiny arms. But in this appealing level 2 picture book from acclaimed science writer Melissa Stewart, you'll learn that T. rex is not the only tyrannosaur that existed in prehistoric times. This nonfiction picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 4 to 6. It's a fun way to learn to read and as a supplement for activity books for children.

In the last fifteen years, scientists have found many tyrannosaurs, including one with a really long pointy nose. The New York Times bestselling coauthor of this book, Dr. Steve Brusatte, went to China in order to help ID the dinosaur that he would give the nickname Pinocchio Rex!

This book is the perfect overview of the exciting new discoveries in the land of tyrannosaurs. Read and find out how tyrannosaurs evolved--from the tiny Dilong to the enormous T. rex. The book also includes an infographic, activity, and glossary, as well as "Dr. Steve Says" sidebars that give readers insight into what it felt like for Dr. Steve to be involved with the discovery of P. Rex!

This is a Level 2 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science title, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) standards. Let's-Read-and-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Tyrannosaurus rex may be the biggest, scariest (and probably the only) tyrannosaur you can name, but this book sets out to change that. After leading off with T. rex, it briefly introduces 10 more species of tyrannosaurs through naturalistic looking digital illustrations, information on where and when their fossils were discovered, time lines for species, and phonetic spellings of their names. Stewart's concise text describes the public reaction when the first T. rex skeleton was displayed in 1915, as well as the 2014 discovery in China of a new tyrannosaur. On some pages, Dr. Steve Says boxes offer comments from coauthor Brusatte, a paleontologist who consulted with the Chinese scientists on their find and confirmed that it was a new tyrannosaur (popularly known as Pinocchio rex). Csotonyi, a natural-history illustrator, contributes colorful scenes showing scientists at work or dinosaurs in the wild, as well as sepia-toned portraits of tyrannosaurs. An appended hands-on activity challenges kids to compare relative tyrannosaur sizes through chalk drawings on a paved playground. A lively addition to the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2018 Booklist"
