This entertaining and fact-filled guide to dinosaurs moves from smallest to largest, comparing each to a modern-day object or animal. "Even velociraptor, a dinosaur that fills our imagination with its flesh-ripping claws and powerful jaws, was only the size of a dog." The concluding notes explain how fossils are formed and how size was determined. A colorful four-page foldout shows the prehistoric and modern animals beside one another. Playful facts from the author of Born to Be Giants (2010) and Bird Talk (2012) Ages 5-7
