Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Brachiosaurs was a sauropod, one of those plant-eating dinosaurs with the long and graceful necks. The author of this little book tells us a good deal about this dinosaur's body, what it ate, what preyed on it, and why it is no longer roaming the face of the earth. He also gives us a picture of Brachiosaur's world-the other creatures that lived at that time and what the world might have looked like then. Daniel Cohen also tells us where fossils of these dinosaurs have been found and explains how paleontologists are studying these dinosaurs today. The information in this book is well presented and interesting, but the photographs and illustrations are unfortunately dull and average at best. At the end of the description about the Brachiosaur there is a "Hands On" activity, which gives the reader the opportunity to figure out how tall the Brachiosaurs was. This activity is followed by a glossary. At the back of the book the reader will find a bibliography, and an index. In addition, the author explains how to use Fact Hound, a special Internet search engine. This book is one in the "Bridgestone Science Library." 2003, Bridgestone Books, Ages 6 to 9.

K-Gr 2-These slim beginning readers will appeal to dinosaur fans. Each of the nine spreads per book discusses one topic ("Parts of-," "Relatives of-," "Discovering-") and consists of three to six sentences opposite an average-quality, color photograph of a museum display, an illustration, or a simple map. The layouts include lots of white space; banners of colors highlight headings or frame photos. Some unfamiliar terms are defined in the glossary (with pronunciation guide) while others are arbitrarily defined in the lower right-hand corner of the recto. Each title concludes with an easy experiment, activity, or game requiring some adult assistance (for example, marking a distance of 39 feet on the floor, the height of the Brachiosaurus). These books are similar in format to the "True Books" series (Children's), but the material presented is even more basic. Satisfying titles for dinophiles starting to read on their own.-Shauna Yusko, King County Library System, Bellevue, WA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
