Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
A source of fascination for kids, who at very young ages seem to have no trouble pronouncing polysyllabic names of their favorite dinosaurs, this little book provides basic information. Kids learn about the age of dinosaurs, paleontologists, probable cause of extinction, and some of the better known dinosaurs. Each page is filled with these colorful creatures and insets illustrate behavior or special features. Part of the "Worldwise" series.
