Dictionary of Dinosaurs: An illustrated A to Z of every dinosaur ever discovered by Dieter Braun, Matthew G Baron

From the publisher: Find out about every dinosaur that’s ever been discovered in this Dictionary of Dinosaurs! 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. Includes the world's best loved dinosaurs such as Diplodocus, T-rex, Triceratops,Velociraptor, Stegosaurus and Brachiosaurus. 

I enjoyed my review of this book and believe it to be an incredible resource to the upper elementary classroom. Each dinosaur listing in the dictionary provides a beautiful illustration, facts, pronunciation guide (very helpful!) meaning of the dinosaurs name in English (dinosaur names are in Latin), and when they were living on this earth, where they lived, and how big they are.

This book could be used in a geography lesson, that students could map out the dinosaurs around the world or it could be used in a math lesson to measure out how big the dinosaurs were (and then compare). 

I have a rating system I use for those books I have read and reviewed on my blog, you may check it out here. I have given this book four coffee cups, Cool Beans!

Reviews PublishedI would like to thank both Netgalley and Quarto Publishing Group for the advanced digital reader copy they provided me in exchange for this honest review. I read this book as a part of my #BookaDay Reading Challenge, inspired by Donalyn Miller. My goal is to read at least one children's literature book every weekday and share my thoughts here on my blog. Please feel free to subscribe or connect with me on social media to follow my journey through the books I read. Until next time ...
