As a kid, I was obsessed with dinosaurs. Other kids loved how big dinosaurs were but I loved thinking about how every giant was once a tiny baby! My grandparents were scientists who studied birds of prey, and as a youngster I imagined I was feeding a baby dinosaur when I helped care for baby hawks. By the time I was fifteen, I got myself a job on a dinosaur dig and spent three summers digging fossils for the Tyrrell Museum in Canada.
I still love dinosaurs! Read about all the amazing clues paleontologists have recently discovered about baby dinosaurs in my book, BORN TO BE GIANTS. Then read how scientists think baby dinosaurs and their parents behaved, and make some of your own conclusions about dinosaurs!
