Overview

Long ago, dinosaurs ruled the Earth. Then, Suddenly, they died out. For thousands of years, no one knew these giant creatures had ever existed. Then people began finding fossils-- bones and teeth and footprints that had turned to stone. Today, teams of experts work together to dig dinosaur fossils out of the ground, bone by fragile bone. Then they put the skeletons together again inside museums, to look just like the dinosaurs of millions of years ago.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Save old editions when you update primary-grade dinosaur collections with Aliki's revised Fossils Tell Of Long Ago, My Visit To The Dinosaurs, and Digging Up Dinosaurs. Have children compare old to new, discover the changes, and discuss why they think those changes took place.
School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-- The most notable change in this revision is the pictures: bright crayon-colored drawings have replaced the drab gray and green illustrations of the earlier edition. The hand-lettered captions and the dialogue in balloons have been slightly enlarged, making them easier to read. Textual changes are slight; Brontosaurus is now called Apatosaurus, and some pages have been combined to streamline the book. Although the 1981 edition already depicted both men and women and people of diverse ethnic backgrounds, it's nice to be greeted by a smiling female paleontologist on the cover of the new edition. There's not much new information here, but the packaging is certainly more timely and appealing. --Cathryn A. Camper, Minneapolis Public Library
