Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This eye-catching, appealing book provides an overview of all kinds of information about dinosaurs, with each topic covering one lavishly illustrated, double-page spread bursting with fascinating facts. For example, Apatosaurus had a body 100,000 times bigger than its brain;if dinosaur eggs had been any bigger, their shells would have been too thick for babies to break out of them;the arms of tyrannosaurs were so short they couldn't even reach their mouths with them. While the book stands on its own as a successful nonfiction book for the elementary years, complete with glossary and index, its distinguishing feature is that every page provides relevant web site addresses, directing readers to sources of further information as well as art they can download for school assignments. To address the needs of the Internet-challenged (as well as to minimize the dangers of children encountering inappropriate sites by accident) all the sites mentioned can be accessed through Usborne's own web site at www.usborne-quicklinks.com. 2001, Usborne, $8.95. Ages 7 to 11. Reviewer:Claudia Mills
