Synopsis

This volume tells the story of prehistoric animals and the world they lived in. In the first chapter, it explores dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures, and compares them with the animals of today. For example, the diplodocus lived in herds as elephants do. The following chapter explains how scientists know what they know about the distant past. Finally, these prehistoric creatures are grouped together by families, rather than by period, making clear relationships and differences between them clear. The "Your World Explained" series presents diverse subjects in an interactive manner that explains to young minds the way things work in the world. Everyday analogies are used where possible to untangle complex ideas so that each subject is made relevant and approachable. Jinny Johnson is the author of "Do Animals Dream?", "Creepy Crawlies", "Dinosaur Skeletons" and "Children's Guide to Birds".
