Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Baumann
Various ways dinosaur parents cared for their young are briefly discussed in this title from the "Dinosaur Dig" series. Eggs were cared for and protected from the sun by placing them in shady areas, and eggs in cooler climates had leaves placed on them for insulation. Some dinosaurs stayed with their parents until they were old enough to care for themselves; some left the nest and were on their own shortly after hatching. Baby dinosaurs learned survival techniques from their parents. Herds were formed to protect one another from predators and find good feeding areas and water. Readers may be confused by some of the information. For example, Stegoceras dinosaurs are described as head-butting one another to fight for dominance. However the last sentence in the chapter states scientists believe dinosaurs probably hit each other in the sides of their bodies instead of head-butting. Some of the information appears in other books in this series such as chapter one titled "Dinosaur Dig." Each two-page chapter explains a characteristic and uses photographs, diagrams, maps, and a WOW! fact box The main idea of the chapter is in bold text. However this is misleading since a note to readers states all glossary words are in bold. Occasionally the glossary words are in regular type if placed in a main idea. In addition, a size box is provided for readers to see comparisons of an average person with a particular dinosaur. The illustrated Dino Guide provides pronunciation, size, weight, and diet of 30 dinosaurs categorized by time period. A glossary and index are also provided. Even with the weaknesses, illustrations of dinosaur fossils, maps, and WOW! facts will provide dinosaur fans with someinteresting facts. Reviewer: Nancy Baumann
