Did you know that the word "dinosaur" means "great lizard"? Have you ever heard of an animal that had to swallow thousands of pounds of plants every day to feed itself? And do you know the name of the largest known flying animal of all time?
In the Age of Dinosaurs will answer all of these questions and many more, presenting a range of interactive activities, stickers, and fun facts for children. Lovingly illustrated by Olivia Cosneau, this book introduces children to the world of dinosaurs and keeps them entertained for hours through fun activities, such as sticking on the missing bottom teeth of a Tyrannosaurus rex or coloring in the back plates of a Stegosaurus. In the process children learn about the different types of dinosaurs that existed, their diet, how they hunted, how they protected their young, and other interesting facts. A quiz at the end of the book tests their knowledge.

‘This exuberantly riotous story… blends the fun of rhyme with the touching friendship between a charismatic crow and a never-say-die young inventor’Lancashire Evening Post
‘A lovely story of ingenuity and determination’ Parents in Touch
‘I doubt many will fail to fall for Izzy and her mechanical mind. Pip Jones’ rhyming narrative is a cracker to read aloud and Sara Ogilvie’s imagination must be almost as fertile as young Izzy’s… A real riot.’ Red Reading Hub blog
‘Jones’s loping, engaging rhymes and Ogilvie’s vivacious images evoke both inspiration and frustration’
It's good to know what the parts of a thing are called, but it's much more interesting to know what they do. Richard Feynman once said that if you can't explain something to a first-year student, you don't really get it. In THING EXPLAINER, Randall Munroe takes a quantum leap past this: he explains things using only drawings and a vocabulary of just our 1,000 (or the ten hundred) most common words.
Many of the things we use every day - like our food-heating radio boxes ('microwaves'), our very tall roads ('bridges'), and our computer rooms ('datacentres') - are strange to us. So are the other worlds around our sun (the solar system), the big flat rocks we live on (tectonic plates), and even the stuff inside us (cells). Where do these things come from? How do they work? What do they look like if you open them up? And what would happen if we heated them up, cooled them down, pointed them in a different direction, or pressed this button?
In THING EXPLAINER, Munroe gives us the answers to these questions and many, many more. Funny, interesting, and always understandable, this book is for anyone- age 5 to 105 - who has ever wondered how things work, and why.
