Age of Reptiles

Series by Ricardo Delgado. Milwaukie, OR: Dark Horse Publications, 2012

A wordless rendering of dinosaurs whose stories are told through brilliant illustration depicting what life was like in the age of dinosaurs.

Note this is at times gory, and while fictional can be integrated into science - particularly scientific inquiry - as students identify dinosaurs and time periods and sort through facts vs. fiction. This can also be used for developing visual literacy as students must rely on visual storytelling alone.
