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.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/blockquote\u003e\n\u003c!-- - - - - - - - - - - ENTER DOWNLOADABLES BELOW - - - - - - - - - - --\u003e\n\u003ch5\u003eDownloadables\u003c\/h5\u003e\n\u003cp style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003cimg alt=\"\" src=\"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0750\/0101\/products\/if-you-were-raised-cvr.jpg?v=1447090673\" style=\"display: block; float: none; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"btn-wrapper\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0750\/0101\/files\/if-you-were-raised-hires.zip?8835958924325928117\" class=\"product-btn\"\u003eDownload the Cover\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c!-- - - - - - - - - - - - ENTER DETAILS BELOW - - - - - - - - - - - --\u003e\n\u003ch5\u003eDetails\u003c\/h5\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003ePaperback\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cbr\u003eISBN: 978-1-62354-015-9\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eE-book PDF\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003eISBN: 978-1-60734-350-9\u003cbr\u003e For information about purchasing E-books, \u003ca title=\"E-book\" href=\"http:\/\/charlesbridge.myshopify.com\/pages\/e-books\"\u003eclick here\u003c\/a\u003e.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAges: 7-10\u003cbr\u003ePage count: 80\u003cbr\u003e9 x 10\u003c\/p\u003e\n[\/TABS]","published_at":"2015-11-22T20:29:00-05:00","created_at":"2015-11-09T12:34:12-05:00","vendor":"Imagine Publishing","type":"Children's Book","tags":["Browse by Age_Ages 6-10","Browse by Fiction\/Nonfiction_Nonfiction","Browse by Language_English","Browse by Subject_Animals \u0026 Dinosaurs"],"price":995,"price_min":995,"price_max":995,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":8209080513,"title":"Paperback","option1":"Paperback","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"40159","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"If You Were Raised by a Dinosaur - Paperback","public_title":"Paperback","options":["Paperback"],"price":995,"weight":354,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_quantity":10,"inventory_management":"shopify","inventory_policy":"continue","barcode":"978-1-62354-015-9"}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0750\/0101\/products\/if-you-were-raised-cover.jpg?v=1586796535"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0750\/0101\/products\/if-you-were-raised-cover.jpg?v=1586796535","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"If You Were Raised by a Dinosaur book cover","id":2474259087439,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.9,"height":667,"width":600,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0750\/0101\/products\/if-you-were-raised-cover.jpg?v=1570476624"},"aspect_ratio":0.9,"height":667,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0750\/0101\/products\/if-you-were-raised-cover.jpg?v=1570476624","width":600}],"content":"\u003c!-- - - - - - - - ENTER AUTHOR\/ILLUSTRATOR INFO BELOW - - - - - - - --\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eBy: \u003ca href=\"http:\/\/www.charlesbridge.com\/pages\/isabella-brooklyn\" title=\"Isabella Brooklyn bio\"\u003eIsabella Brooklyn\u003c\/a\u003e \/ Illustrated by: \u003ca href=\"http:\/\/www.charlesbridge.com\/pages\/haude-levesque-ph-d\" title=\"Haude Levesque bio\"\u003eHaude Levesque, Ph.D.\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c!-- - - - - - - - ENTER HEADING BELOW - - - - - - - --\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eWhat would it have been like to be a dinosaur baby long, long ago?\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003c!-- - - - - - - - ENTER DESCRIPTION BELOW - - - - - - - --\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eEvery boy and girl dreams of seeing a dinosaur . . . but what about BEING one?

If You Were Raised by a Dinosaur

By: Isabella Brooklyn / Illustrated by: Haude Levesque, Ph.D.

What would it have been like to be a dinosaur baby long, long ago?

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.

Ithaca Child

If you're looking for something for older readers, this is a good resource, and it's written and illustrated by people steeped in science. The first chapter introduces the science of paleontology and some insight into how scientists determine whether a dinosaur walked on two feet or four.

Chapter two poses a question: What came first, the dino or the egg? Of all the things scientists know, or surmise about dinosaurs, the one fact they all agree on is that dinosaurs hatched from eggs. And those eggs came in a range of sizes and shapes; some were a foot long and 10 inches wide, others only an inch long. The next chapter asks whether dinosaurs were good parents. Some dinos protected their young from predators; some brought food back to the next for their hatchlings. Parental care in dinosaurs is a hot topic these days, as scientists uncover evidence that babies had no teeth – so someone had to feed them. And massopondylus babies started out walking on four legs before they eventually learned to walk on two.

One chapter focuses on T. rex, comparing skeletons of youngsters against adults. Turns out humans share some similarities with this dinosaur: both species take about the same amount of time to mature from juveniles to adults, and hit a growth spurt near 12 years of age. The book ends with a chapter about the future of paleontology, a pronunciation guide, and a useful index.

OMB (Oh My Books)

If You Were Raised By A Dinosaur takes readers back to the time when big and small dinosaurs roamed Earth. The book mixes imagination and real knowledge gained through scientific research. What's fun is the book talks about parenting in a way human children will understand.

The chapters include:

If You Were Raised by a Dinosaur?

What Came First, the Dino or the Egg? Were Dinosaurs Good Parents?

The Case of the Lizard King

The Future of Studying the Past

Readers are taken on a journey through science that moves beyond dinosaurs to tidbits like different minerals are found in different bodies of water, allowing scientists to identify where a fossil originated. On another page, the scientific formula used to determine the a dinosaur's size. It might seem like a complicated formula, but the book explains the formula in a way that readers will find interesting.

According to the Charlesbridge website "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?

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.
