A Gallery of Dinosaurs and Other Early Reptiles
by David Peters
Publisher: Random House Value Publishing 1991
Number of pages: 30
David Peters' presentation of the creatures is broader than many dinosaur books for children, including one hundred dinosaurs and other prehistoric reptiles of all sizes. The illustrations here portray the dinosaurs to scale in relation to one another, and in relation to the five-foot-tall young people shown crawling on, swimming with, or simply admiring these creatures.

Studying the distant suns is a great strain on the imagination. If you are to get a true picture of the stars, you will have to imagine temperatures so high that the temperature in the center of a furnace fire would be cool beside them.
This book is about science experiments that you can do in the home and experiments that you can nag your teacher to do in school. Featured experiments: Slime recipes; Red cabbage indicator; Pinhole Camera; Raisin Dance; and much more.
