Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Read the general information on the size, physical features, and eating habits of the Apatosaurus. In the first chapter, readers will find a pronunciation guide for the name of this particular dinosaur. Besides the physical description, there are color illustrations of the dinosaur and a pictorial chart that compares the length of an Apatosaurus with buses and its weight with elephants. Examine the photograph that shows the fossil of the dinosaur eggs which were described as "very big" in the text. In a later section of the book, children will learn that the Apatosaurus egg is about the size of a soccer ball. Students may benefit from additional support on a concrete level to understand the immensity of the Apatosaurus described on the abstract level of scale drawings and facts in the text. Children may need an introduction for other informational text features such as a pictorial glossary and index. Those students wishing to explore more information about dinosaurs may find the suggested web sites to be helpful. This book is a part of the "Rookie Read-About Dinosaurs" series. Teachers and students may find interest in comparing the differences and similarities of the dinosaurs across the series. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
