Firefly Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Animals by Dr. Douglas Palmer

The book, Firefly Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Animals by Dr. Douglas Palmer is fully illustrated and detailed with all interesting facts and information about all types of Dinosaurs, from common to the not so well known.  Plus, there is so much detailed information about fossils and the types of Dinosaurs. Some of these mentioned in the book are the Fish, Amphibians, Early Reptiles, Dinosaurs, Avion Dinosaurs, Synapsids and Mammals. There is also a timeline inside the book that explains the different periods during the Dinosaur era. Therefore, this has many things most books on Dinosaurs may leave out in my opinion, but this book has so much that even if you had no idea or probably even know so much already, that you might learn something new!
When I look into this book, all I notice is the gorgeous illustrations and even how the hardcover front part of the book is nicely illustrated with these Dinosaurs, with T-Rex front and center. It really is an appealing book for Adults and children. The best part is that these photos inside are of real images of realistic Dinos and fossils, not black and white sketched images. You even have nice view of landscapes, where the fossils could be found. It even goes into details how the fossil forms after the skeleton of the Dinosaur is left .
I know by reading an encyclopedia you're given all the information you need to understand a certain subject. From this book I get every little detailed information about Dinosaurs from beginning to fossil. So I really would recommend this book from Firefly publishing, created by the author Dr. Douglas Palmer. It's so beautiful, filled with facts and information that will make you feel excited to learn more. Excellent book!
