To continue expanding the topic options in our virtual library, we have created a collection of dinosaur books in PDF format. This in order to continue learning about these fascinating primitive reptiles that have stolen the attention of many for many years.
Prehistory is a very long period of time, in which dinosaurs starred a part. How they became extinct is not entirely proven, but it is believed to have been the crash of a meteorite into the Earth. With our compendium of books on dinosaurs you will be able to study this topic much more in depth.
The word dinosaur comes from the Greek “deinos” and “sauros” which means “terrible lizard”. Dinosaurs were reptiles that inhabited the Earth between the Upper Triassic period (245 million years ago) and the end of the Cretaceous period (65 million years ago). Even so, they were not the first, as they were preceded by archosaurs.
Their origin was discovered from the finding of their fossils in excavations, and their direct ancestors were the thecodonts. In this sense, dinosaurs share a family with birds, flying reptiles and crocodiles.
Within the saurischians are theropods and sauropods. Ornithischians include ornithopods, stegosaurs, ankylosaurs and ceratosaurs.
There are still many unanswered questions about dinosaurs, many facts cannot be confirmed with certainty and questions such as whether they cared for their young or why they disappeared as a species.
What we can do is to delve deeper into the existing information and delight ourselves with such a fascinating subject. To do so, we invite you to review our more than 20 dinosaur books in PDF format, all ready for free download on your different electronic devices.

Dinosaur Books for Children
The simple fact of talking about dinosaurs presents a challenge to the human mind, throughout history there have been doubts about their existence on the one hand, while others affirm that they did exist (scientists). Because of that, they do not appear in school books for children, or anything about them, however, this is not important for the little ones, since they only care about having fun.
That is why dinosaurs are usually part of their large repertoire of toys and animated movies, there are even dinosaur books for children that teach them how each one of them supposedly was, their names, their food, their habitat, etc.
Without a doubt they are quite eye-catching, many of the illustrations that come in these books are very colorful and friendly, something that children love.

Dinosaurs Coloring Pages
Painting is a playful activity that fosters the development of abstract thinking in children, helps them in their creative capacity, and stimulates their brains, besides being a healthy and fun recreational activity.
The coloring materials are quite varied, from simple primers to entire blocks, many of them contain drawings of each kind of dinosaur that has been recorded (fossils found) so that they can learn about it.
The types of dinosaurs to color are the following: Tyrannosaurs (carnivores, kings among dinosaurs and predators), Velociraptors (The fastest, also carnivores and predators), Diplodocus (the largest of all herbivores), Triceratops (herbivores) and Pterodactyls (flying). It is recommended that parents can take advantage of the opportunity to develop the creativity of their little artists.
