July 23, 2015

Journey back in time to the Jurassic and Cretaceous eras and explore the world of the giant sauropods and deadly raptors. Our second Dinosaurs ROAR! book for children aged 11-14 years is called Jurassic Planet.  It’s available to borrow from our free postal library NOW!

The book contains four tactile pictures, atmospheric audio guides and sound effects. No dinosaur book would be complete without the well-loved Diplodocus – explore the iconic shape of one of the largest sauropods to wander the Earth and hear all about discoveries that have changed the way scientists think about this giant beast – the way it held its head and tail and the way it fed. The second tactile features a fearsome predator, the Allosaurus. One of our most popular and recognisable dinosaurs you’ll find out what made it such a big, mean killing machine.

We move into the Cretaceous period for our third dinosaur – a large, plant eater with a powerful secret weapon, the Iguanodon. Finally it’s the turn of the raptors and one in particular with a deadly slashing claw, the Utahraptor.
