Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Since dinosaurs are extinct, readers learn that our knowledge about these creatures comes from fossils that paleontologists have discovered. While the bones give an idea of the animals' size and structure, they do not tell us anything about their skin or coloration. Fossils have been found that do show skin patterns which include scales and feathers. There is a spread that names and phonetically spells out the names of half a dozen of the more well-known dinosaurs. Then there is a presentation of the biggest, a description of how dinosaurs walked, held their necks, what they ate and a description of the teeth associated with herbivores versus the carnivores. Kids will probably find this section fascinating especially seeing the size of a Tyrannosaurus Rex tooth. For those who may have wondered about woolly mammoths, they were not dinosaurs, however the text is unequivocal in stating that chickens are living dinosaurs. That may be a bit of a revelation to some readers. The layout uses excellent photographs and has dinosaurs running across the top of every page; a bit busy but still appealing. There are jokes interspersed throughout and most are puns. A good start for those fascinated by big these large extinct animals. A Level 1 book in the "National Geographic Readers" series targeted to kids who are starting to read. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
