Read extremely fun facts about dinosaurs
Gr 3-5- This title poses 21 questions about these perennially popular creatures and answers them with a simple text accompanied by crisp photos and/or attractive artwork. Colorful backgrounds surround the text and provide extra visual spice to the many pronunciation balloons and links to inviting Web sites. A Mesozoic time line is provided, as is an interview with Dr. Matthew Carrano, a field paleontologist who is a curator at the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC. Published under the aegis of the Smithsonian, this is not as challenging as Luis V. Rey's Extreme Dinosaurs (Chronicle, 2001), but will surely appeal to most young dinophiles and add a fresh, toothy Tyrannosaurus cover to those well-used 567.9s.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NYCopyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
