Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book combines poetry, prose, and detailed illustrations to create an interesting and informative dinosaur alphabet. Each letter of the alphabet is accompanied by a simple four-line poem musing about some aspect of dinosaurs. The poem is illustrated by a two-page spread illustration. The poem is further elaborated by sidebars of prose detailing interesting facts about aspects of dinosaur life such as adaptation, nest-building, and twelve-year-old fossil hunters. This book can be used in a variety of ways in the classroom. It can be read from cover to cover in one sitting as a poetry book or sections of prose can be used for more in-depth study. The youngest dinosaur scholars will enjoy simply studying the beautiful illustrations by themselves. However you choose to use it, this book will make a great addition to any dinosaur unit. Reviewer: Caroline B. Hopenwasser
