ReadItDaddy's Second Book of the Week - Week Ending 23rd November 2018: "The Dictionary of Dinosaurs" by Dr Matthew Baron and Dieter Braun (Natural History Museum Books / Wide Eyed Editions)

Our second Picture Book of the Week this week is a truly stunning non-fiction book that does far more than dig into dinos...!
"Dictionary of Dinosaurs" by Dr Matthew Baron, illustrated by Dieter Braun gathers together a colossal collection of some of the most amazing creatures ever to stalk our planet.

Collecting over 300 dinosaur species together, Matthew and Dieter have built a truly incredible visual encyclopaedia that shows off species that you may already know and be familiar with, as well as a ton of obscure dinosaurs you may not have come across yet.

From Aardonyx to Zuniceratops, read about when they lived, where they lived, what they ate and much more. 

Featuring epic artwork from Dieter Braun, and up-to-date facts from top dinosaur experts, it's the sort of book we love dipping into purely because it covers so many bases.

Well loved dinosaurs such as Diplodocus, T-rex, Triceratops,Velociraptor, Stegosaurus and Brachiosaurus are in here but it's the more obscure ones we have loved learning about the most (particularly some of the aerial species that dominated the skies above our prehistoric landscapes). 

"Dictionary of Dinosaurs" by Dr Matthew Baron and Dieter Braun is out now, published by Natural History Museum Books / Wide Eyed Editions (kindly supplied for review).
