Creatures of Long Ago - Dinosaurs

by Peggy D. Winston, John Sibbick
 

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
A first class pop-up book about kids' favorite type of creatures-the dinosaurs. They literally leap off the pages, providing three-dimensional scenes filled with both plant and flesh eaters. All of those tongue-twisting dinosaur names are presented phonetically along with a few facts. Bound to appeal to the younger set.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3--Animals Showing Off plays better than it reads. On every page surprises leap out to delight readers. Crickets chirp, ostriches flap their wings, and blue-footed boobies dance in an endless mating ritual. There are tabs to pull, flaps to flip, and details to ponder. The text, which is basic at best, discusses ways in which mammals, fish, and birds entice, frighten, and fool each other. However, visually this book is so appealing that its point is well made. It should encourage more detailed exploration and reading by students, so this fun-filled volume is a worthy addition to nature sections. Dinosaurs is so clever and exciting that serious consideration should be given to its purchase. It's a truly three-dimensional work in which dinosaurs leap out at the turn of a page; icthyornis fly through the air; bone heads do battle at the tug of a tab. Turn a flap and a baby dinosaur pops out of an egg while a less fortunate hatchling is stolen by a lizard. The text describes most major dinosaurs as well as some that are lesser known. Teachers and librarians will find use for this book in book talks, displays, and, heaven forbid, circulation. Neither book has an index, table of contents, chapters, or even a title page. --Eva Elisabeth Von Ancken, Trinity Pawling School, N.Y.
