9780152008529: How Big Were the Dinosaurs?

If Ankylosaurus were alive today, you might be able to ride it to school—after all, it was bigger than a school bus. And if Diplodocus was on your basketball team, you’d always be sure to win the game; his body would stretch the length of the court! In this fact- and fancy-filled book about dinosaurs, Bernard Most shows just how the largest of these prehistoric creatures would measure up in today’s child’s world. A six-page foldout helps show how big the biggest dinosaur really was.

About the Author:

BERNARD MOST has written and illustrated many popular children's books, including The Cow That Went OINK, If the Dinosaurs Came Back, How Big Were the Dinosaurs?, Whatever Happened to the Dinosaurs?, and Where to Look for a Dinosaur. He lives in New York.

From Publishers Weekly:

Certainly Jurassic Park swept away any possible doubt about dinos' enduring popularity: though extinct, T. Rex and his pals are here to stay. Most's seven books about these fabulous creatures have done much to enhance youngsters' enjoyment and understanding of the topic; his latest offering handily continues that tradition. Familiar objects (book, toothbrush, bulldozer, a baby's crib) are ingeniously juxtaposed with dino likenesses to illustrate the book's opening sentence, "It's hard to imagine how big some of the dinosaurs really were." Most's customarily playful, vividly hued artwork blends perfectly with kid-friendly lingo for painless edification. Noting, for example, that the Mamenchisaurus's neck was "longer than a school flagpole," Most suggests that "this is a dinosaur worth saluting." The concept of size reaches its zenith in a triple-page fold-out spread: one side compares the relative proportions of a Seismosaurus and an Apatosaurus; the reverse shows a gaggle of children capering on a dino's tail. A mammoth delight. Ages 3-8.
