Editorial Reviews

The New York Times
A first-class trip all the way.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Once again, the author of Dinosaurs, Dinosaurs ; Trucks ; Boats and other picture books proves himself a master of simplicity. Here, a spare, rhythmic text ``Bones. Bones. We look for bones.'' and vibrant, childlike pictures focus on six young paleontologists at work. They diligently dig up the dinosaur bones, wrap and pack them, load them on trucks and bring them to the natural history museum. There the bones are dusted off, and the skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus rex is reassembled, bone by bone. Finally, the painstaking job is completed, and the six workers set out in search of more bones. Barton makes a complex procedure easily comprehensible to the very youngest readers--and listeners. Children who have looked at dinosaur skeletons in museums and asked ``How did it get here?'' now have a concise, entertaining answer. Ages 3-6. Sept.
School Library Journal
As in I Want to Be an Astronaut Crowell, 1988, Barton takes a complex profession and makes it comprehensible to the very young. This time he captures the essence of the paleontologist's work: ``Bones. Bones. We look for bones,'' and ``We look for the bones of dinosaurs.'' Six stoic scientists of both genders and varied race are depicted digging, wrapping, packing, loading , and assembling their finds. The illustrations are painted in bold primary colors on green, blue, and yellow backdrops; don't let children miss out on the last spread, in which nine dinosaurs are found, with labels that include pronunciations. A fine companion volume to Barton's Dinosaurs, Dinosaurs Crowell, 1989. --Denia Lewis Hester, Dewey School, Evanston, IL

    A reviewer

    This is one of my sons favorite books now. He is 19 months old. While it is written for older children, he loves to look at the pictures and point out the airplanes on each page. It shows a family arriving at the airport and ends with the plane taking off into the sky. For any child who loves airplanes this is a great book. A fun one to read while flying as well!
