Excavate! Dinosaurs is the perfect paper paleontology collection for dinosaur-loving kids ages 7 and up. With fun text and colorful illustrations, Jonathan Tennant explains the anatomy, habits, and diet of 12 iconic dinosaurs from the Cretaceous, Jurassic, and Triassic eras. Pages of pop-out pieces can be assembled into stand-up paper models of each dinosaur skeleton, but only if kids can use their new knowledge and imagination to put the pieces together correctly — just like real paleontologists do!
Jonathan Tennant is a science educator and paleontologist working on his PhD in tetrapod biodiversity and extinction at Imperial College in London, England. He co-hosts a podcast series called Palaeocast, tweets as @protohedgehog, and blogs at egu.eu/palaeoblog.
