Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The eight dinosaurs presented in this book lived in the colder regions of the earth millions of years ago. The Centrosaurus moved to warmer areas in search of plants to eat when the cool season arrived. The large Cryolophosaurus searched cold beaches for dead sea animals washed ashore. Spikes and armored plates protected the large Edmontonia as it ate twigs off of conifer trees in the cold north. The Iguanodon was a large plant-eater with thumb spikes on its front legs. The Leaellynasaura used its large eyes to seek plants to eat in the long, dark winter. The Minmi had armor and speed to help protect it from meat-eaters. The Pachycephalosaurus was slightly taller than a man. It butted its enemy with a bony dome on its head. The Troodon ran fast to catch its prey. It laid its eggs in a nest in the open where the mother warmed them until they hatched. Each dinosaur is pictured in detail in its natural environment, and its size is compared to a chicken, a human or an elephant. A modern day animal that may have some similarities to each dinosaur is shown. The back of the book offers library references and a web site. This is an excellent choice for an elementary school library. 2005, Picture Window Books, Ages 6 to 10.
