A dynamic look at Canada's first inhabitants — the dinosaurs!

Children will always be fascinated by dinosaurs, and now Scholastic's Canada Close Up series offers them a glimpse of the history of dinosaurs in Canada. From the Albertosaurus to the Tyrannosaurus, palaeontologists have found Canada to be a rich source of dinosaur fossils, providing the world with further clues about the mysterious beasts that used to inhabit the Earth. This exploration of the Canadian aspect will help young dinosaur lovers get excited about fossils found close to home!
