"Life-sized depictions of prehistoric animals from the itty-bitty (a protozoan that's no more than a dot) to the colossal (the Giganotosaurus, whose teeth are its only part small enough to be shown) fill the pages of this eye-catching and informative book. Steve Jenkins' dramatic, detailed collage illustrations will be as spellbinding to young prehistory buffs as the additional facts on each creature in the back of the book. Prehistoric Actual Size is great for kids ages five and up." February 2013 Kids' Books http://www.nextreads.com/Display2.aspx?SID=5acc8fc1-4e91-4ebe-906d-f8fc5e82a8e0&N=606238
