If You Were Raised by a Dinosaur Book Review

*I received a free book for review purpose. I did not receive any other form of compensation from the company. All opinions are my own and not influenced in anyway. My reviews are not always positive, but they are my personal and honest opinions. Other people's views and experiences with the product or products might be different from mine. 

Every boy and girl dreams of seeing a dinosaur…but what about BEING one? Maybe a baby with Tyrannosaurus Rex as a mom? Or a gentler giant who preferred munching leaves? With lots of fascinating facts and striking illustrations that recreate a lost world millions of years old, Isabella Brooklyn and Haude Levesque guide young readers into the prehistoric era to find out.

Because scientists never had the chance to study a live dinosaur in its natural environment, they can't know for sure what kind of parents dinosaurs were, or exactly how they raised their young. But by following the clues they dig up, and using the latest in medical technology, paleontologists can make educated guesses, and offer an exciting glimpse into what it might have been like to be a dinosaur child.

Kids will meet dinosaurs of every type, from theropods and sauropodomorphs with their grasping, asymmetrical fingers to "good mother" Maiasaurus and Psittacosaurus babies who had "nannies"--adults that raised all the children in the group.

There's also a hint of what the future of dinosaur studies will be, thanks to technology unimaginable only a few years ago.

Our Review:
Written for kids age 7 to 10 years old, If You Were Raised by a Dinosaur  is a great book for dinosaur lovers. My daughter has always been fascinated by dinosaurs. Over the years she has acquired many book on the topic. However, due to her age, most of the books were simply children's stories with dinosaur characters. We are fans of this book because it offers scientific explanations about the habitats for different dinosaurs. Children could also learn interesting facts such as why sizes matter for dinosaurs or why finding dinosaur eggs is important for scientific research. DD is in the second grade and could read this book with very little assistance. She finds the book interesting and enjoys reading it a great deal. As such, I would recommend it to children who love learning about dinosaurs as much as my daughter does.
