You guessed it – this book is ALL ABOUT DINOSAURS! This amazing oversized hardcover book and is absolutely stunning. The main cover has a raised-effect Tyrannosaurus rex on it – run your fingers over it to feel the scaled. With shiny gold lettering across the front, this is a really good-looking book, inside and out.

Crack open the cover and you’re in for a real treat. The contents of this book are designed to look like the research notebook or field guide of a retired paleontologist. The contents are breathtaking. The book is beautifully illustrated by Robert Nicholls and James Robins – all the different dinosaurs described inside come alive in full color and tons of detail.

Check out the inside cover – it contains an envelope that really opens to reveal a letter from the author, which explains the handbook you’re about to read is a collection of notes from years of studying dinosaurs.


And the surprises don’t end there. Each page of this book covers a new topic, and includes flaps you can unfold to reveal more amazing dinosaur information, pullouts, maps, specimens and more. It’s a really great way to get interactive and learn all about dinosaurs.


Finally, the book comes with a huge, full-color, double-sided poster you can pull out and hang on your wall. It shows different species of dinosaurs on one side, and the relative size of dinosaur footprints (compared to human footprints) on the other.

No matter how fancy a school is, there will be behaviour problems. Homework can be left to the last minute depending on how tactile you are, after the first few months you'll want to disappear unless you become popular but hang in there! Also, there are three types of people at Middle School or Secondary School:The cacti-The cacti are people who seem hard on the outside [we all have to be in Middle School] but are really lovely and soft if you get to know them. Some cacti can be pricks [no pun intended] but most are nice enough people so a cacti is probably an ideal friend at Middle School.The rocks-AVOID AT ALL COSTS! These are the people who are completely tough and are often bullies. It often seems like they have no emotions because they don't. They are sociopaths and must be avoided. But they are often popular jock kids.The marshmallows-These guys are pretty good, they're soft all the way through and get along well with most people and mostly abide by the rules. They can be hurt easily and roasted because they're so soft. Marshmallows are often smart and get along well with teachers as a result. The only flaw with marshmallows is that some have the tendency to rub their good grades in your face and make you feel insecure but they're nice people mostly.Oh and we can also get cacti rocks and spiky marshmallows.Hope I helped  Teachers are never the enemy!! They're there to help you. They can be a very valuable resource and it is so very important to collaborate with them to make the most of your learning experience!  If you put off a cold attitude and don't speak to people, they're more than likely going to assume you're stuck up and that can make the experience a lot worse than it has to be. Smile, be kind, and if there's someone picking on you, tell a teacher or other staff member, and try to stay out of their path. (I know from experience being an "outsider", it's better not to make yourself a quiet target). im nervous about starting high school.  middle school was alot of fun but you do get alot of classwork and homework. i couldnt have said it any better like you did kirsteeeen.   [s:p/zxl]

    Doctors might be the more ethical choice, but honestly I think a lot of celebrities do deserve high salaries considering the scrutiny, lack of privacy, and judgement they go through. They're human too, and their lives are turned upside down once they become part of the spotlight.  Both are respectable careers, in their own ways, and I think that certain positions in the medical profession should get a raise.
