Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
What eats meat with eight-inch teeth? A 49-foot-long Giganotosaurus! Of course, not all of the gigantic dinosaurs were carnivores. For example, the Brachiosaurus was an herbivore. Young dinosaur fans may enjoy reading the brief descriptions about these two, huge dinosaurs and six other large dinosaurs that roamed the earth during the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. Young readers may need some guidance with the features of an informational text, along with content vocabulary. Scale diagrams provide a visual estimation of how large these dinosaurs were, showing the dinosaurs as compared with an approximately six-foot tall human. Each full layout is about one of the eight dinosaurs. A brief description is followed by a question and response. The response provides further details about an aspect of the dinosaur's description. Color illustrations are a part of each spread. Readers will find a table of contents, pronunciations guides, a simple glossary, and an index in the book. Zimmerman provides a list of some suggested books and the address of the publisher's website for readers who seek additional information. The web site includes a simple crossword puzzle along with some unlabeled portals to websites that have more information about dinosaurs. Readers who are interested in other prehistoric animals from the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods may find the other five books in the "Dino Times Trivia" series fascinating, too. The format for the series is similar, although the theme of each book is different, as are the featured prehistoric reptiles. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
