    The past and present together

    I have an almost seven year old who loves dinosaurs! Every week he brings home two more books from his school library about dinosaurs so I thought this book would be perfect to share with him. I really liked how Rechlin put the animals that live in Yellowstone today right next to the ones who were living in that area 70 million years ago. Each animal has their statistics next to them giving their size and weight. Even though a lot of facts were included it was still interesting to read and very easy to get into. I haven't shared it with my son yet, I did the first read through on my own, but I am very excited to share it with him tomorrow when we read together. One thing I thought would have been helpful would be to have the pronunciation for the names listed along with the facts. From having read so many dinosaur books aloud I have to say that some of them have names can be tricky and I hate finding out that I've been mispronouncing a name. That said, most of the dinosaurs in this book are ones I've read about before and I already knew how to pronounce, it was just something I noticed as I was reading through.

    The illustrations added to the story for me. I liked how the ground squirrel and the purgatorius were present for most of the story going about their daily task of finding food for themselves and their babies. It showed how so many things are going on at any given moment. I am ashamed to mention that I didn't know that both coyotes and wolves live in Yellowstone. I knew about the wolves but never considered coyotes. At one time we lived in Nevada and we saw coyotes on more than one occasion. Yellowstone sounds like such a great place to visit. At some point I would like to visit. Seeing national parks really brings nature into focus, I remember seeing the Grand Canyon and being really struck by how quiet it is as well as obviously being quite huge. Pictures just don't show it the way it is in person and I have a feeling Yellowstone is the same way.

    I received this book from the author through an annoucement posted by Bostick Communications. The book was received for review purposes.
