Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nicole Peterson
Poop, scat, feces, turds, or dung—call it what you will, but dinosaurs produced huge quantities of it. Scientists can study the fossilized versions and learn more about dinosaurs millions of years ago. This interactive book is filled with history, explanations of fossils, amber, DNA, ice age mammals, geology, and mummified remains. This book will captivate children as they learn about how fossils are created, what they teach us, and how they are found. Scattered throughout the book are fun facts and quizzes, and short explanations for interesting findings such as the world's smelliest tunnel, Amber Lore, and "Oh Deer." The last part of the book includes directions for some science experiments to learn more about fossils. The end of the book has a couple of pages called "field notes" for young scientists to keep track of interesting information. The book also includes a list of where young scientists can find some of these amazing fossils. This book comes with a piece of dino dung attached to the spine.
