Prehistoric Actual Size

  • Title: Prehistoric Actual Size
  • Author: Steve Jenkins
  • Illustrator: Steve Jenkins
  • Publisher: Houghton Mifflin
  • Publication year: 2005
  • Brief Summary: From Houghton Mifflin-“What is it like to come face-to-face with the ten-foot-tall terror bird? Or stare into the mouth of the largest meat eater ever to walk the earth? Can you imagine a millipede that is more than six feet long, or a dinosaur smaller than a chicken? In this “actual size” look at the prehistoric world, which includes two dramatic gatefolds, you’ll meet these awe-inspiring creatures, as well as many others.”
  • Ideas for using this book in classroom or library – This book would be great for young children to get familiar with prehistoric animals. This book could be used in a science class also. I also think that this book could be used for older children too, not just young children.
  • Whatever additional notes you’d like to add about this book and why you liked or didn’t like it – I think children who are interested in science, or young children who are fascinated by dinosaurs will find this picture book interesting. I like the colorful, some full-size illustrations as well.
