The Late Jurassic (Ancient Earth Journal) by Juan Carlos Alonso and Gregory Paul -ADVISABLE

Alonso, Juan Carlos and Paul, Gregory The Late Jurassic (Ancient Earth Journal), 112 pgs Walter Foster Jr(Quatro), 2016. $19.95. NONFICTION
This large book (yearbook size) features information about the Late Jurassic life. Its grouped into Theropods, Sauropods, Ornithischuans, Pterosaurs and the mammals. Each double page spread features one or two creatures with basic information and large illustrations. There are close ups of a wide variety, bones, and comparisons, such as scale to humans.
This is a top notch book for students. The dinosaur books receive the most circulation from K-2 graders, and this book contains just enough information without being too overwhelming. The cover is incredible with a texture and raised dinosaur. The pages are large with incredible illustrations that looks fairly realistic. The facts are interesting and brief. The book also feels like it will hold up well to young readers and the pages lay flat easily, which is a huge plus.
