Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
Alongside the dinosaurs there lived small mammals. When the dinosaurs became extinct the mammals began to grow larger. Nine of these mammals plus homo sapiens are described here. Each description begins with a pronunciation guide. Physical characteristics and whether they were plant or meat eaters is mentioned. Readers will be fascinated by their appearance in these illustrations. Brown does a fine job of describing their size. Several of the meat eaters are shown eating their meal. The Woolly Mammoth and the Smilodon (saber-toothed tiger) are here, but so are lesser-known creatures such as the Basilosaurus (a kind of early whale), the Hyracotherium (the ancestor of the horse), and Megatherium (a huge bear-like animal). Part of the "I Can Read!" series, this is a "Reading With Help" level 2 book which has "high-interest stories for developing readers." Budding paleontologists will be engrossed.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-This title examines a variety of ancient mammals. It opens with a brief introduction, followed by a spread devoted to each animal. The creatures are compared to things that readers will recognize (e.g., "size of a small dog"). The pronunciation guide is a welcome feature. The finely detailed watercolor illustrations emphasize the unusual features of each species. This title is more substantive than Helen Frost's Woolly Mammoth (Capstone, 2005) as it focuses on more than one ancient animal in more complex sentences. Add this book if your students are addicted to prehistory.-Christine Markley, Washington Elementary School, Barto, PA Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
From the woolly mammoth to the Indricotherium, the largest land mammal ever, paleontologist Brown describes ten extraordinary, but now extinct, mammals, plus the surviving Homo sapien [sic]. Each double-page spread includes a colored illustration of the mammal in its environment, pronunciation of its name and a short description, usually emphasizing its eating habits. The last page illustrates and describes the work of paleontologists, although that word is not used. An author's note explains the time covered in this survey, which is ordered for dramatic effect, not for chronology. This is straightforward information, presented in an interesting and accessible package for developing readers, although they might find the table of contents more helpful if all the pages were numbered. In a series aimed at offering high-interest stories, this more than fills the bill, and is a welcome accompaniment to The Day the Dinosaurs Died (May 2006) by the same team. (Nonfiction. 6-8)

    My 2 year old loves this book

    My daughter is 2.5 years old. We bought her this book and "Monsters of Air and Sea". She loves to read both of them and can advance the pages as the Nook reads to her.
