Dinosaurs roam the pages of this picture book which puts the lie to the notion that all dinosaurs were enormous in size and lived in similar habitats Because the authorillustrator juxtaposes different types of dinosaurs against animals with which most readers will be familiar it's easy to see that they were actually various sizes For instance the Microraptor was slightly smaller than a chicken the Leaellynasaura was only two feet tall and lived near the South Pole And the book makes it clear that size didn't necessarily translate into brain capacity or smarts; for instance the Stegosaurus which weighed about a much as three cows had a walnut size brain The facts and comparisons come fast and furious in this picture book which concludes with information about scientists use fossils to help them form conjectures about how dinosaurs actually looked The softly colored illustrations enable readers to look at the different animals carefully Four pages fold out to reveal all the dinosaurs and modern animals featured in the book and allow young readers to make comparisons This is another exceptional title from Lita Judge who answers the title uestion How Big Were Dinosaurs by saying Not as big as you thought they were
