HARPERCOLL
Most people would laugh if you told them you were having a dinosaur for dinner. But you can. Because birds evolved from dinosaurs, says renowned paleontologist Chris McGowan, that chicken from Sunday's supper is a direct descendant of those fearsome and perennially popular "terrible lizards."

To show this relationship and give readers a unique, hands-on introduction to the principles of paleontology, McGowan has devised a deliciously clever science project that kids of all ages can really sink their teeth into -- the creation of their very own dinosaur skeleton. Numerous illustrations guide readers step-by-step through the process of taking the bones of three chickens, some wire, glue, toothpicks and a few other household items, and building a model even the Museum of Natural History would admire. As they assemble their Apatosaurus skeleton, budding scientists will learn real-life paleontological practices as well as facts about evolution, anatomy, and, of course, dinosaurs. Featuring three recipes for chicken soups and salads to ensure that the chicken meat is put to good use, Make Your Own Dinosaur out of Chicken Bones is the perfect treat for dinosaur lovers of all ages.
