So You Think You Know About Dinosaurs?

Biologist and TV scientist Ben Garrod has written a fun, funny, informative and collectible series about dinosaurs. The series will be launching with T. Rex, Diplodocus and Tricearatops.

To celebrate this new series, Head of Zeus have created a fantastic activity pack to help get children even more excited about dinosaurs and reading.

Did you know that not all dinosaurs are green and scaly, some are ginger and feathered, or that they didn’t all roar, they cooed like pigeons, or that the ultimate prehistoric predator is actually not a dinosaur?

The publisher would love to see how your activities and events throughout March and April. You can do this on social media using #dinogeek and by tagging @HoZ_Books, @readingagency and the author @ben_garrod.
