Children's LiteratureBrachiosaurs 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.
