TOO TINY TO BE TERRIFYING. The fascinating world of baby dinosaurs—in amazing pictures!
What did a dinosaur look like sitting on its eggs? What kind of parent was a Tyrannosaurus rex? How could an Argentinosaurus, who probably hatched from an egg no bigger than 18 inches long, grow up to weigh more than 17 elephants? It’s a sure bet that kids—always fascinated by dinosaurs—have wondered about these questions.BORN TO BE GIANTS, with its glossary of dinosaurs, easy-to-
understand text, and full-color illustrations, shows little readers how baby dinosaurs grew up to be GIANTS.

Praise For Born to Be Giants

“Along with a full measure of visual appeal, [Judge] also delivers a terse but clear explanation of how scientists gain insight into dino parenting. Though profiling only eight kinds of dinosaurs, this serves as a nice gateway to more detailed studies of the topic." -- Booklist


"The inclusion of these primary sources, plus the details of the artwork make this an excellent work about early paleontology. Recommended." -- Library Media Connection
