Children's LiteratureThe prehistoric rhino, also known as the giant rhino, has left its fossils in countries such as Pakistan, Mongolia, and China, and although Indricotherium is extinct, it leaves something behind for today's young readers—a lasting impression. This easy-to- understand book compares the giant rhino to the modern rhino using not only statistics, but also helpful illustrations to show that it was four times bigger, had no horn, and shared the commonality of hoofed feet with today's rhino. But it doesn't stop there; hypotheses are also mentioned, such as the disputed facts of whether the giant rhino lived alone or in a herd, and if it could go for days without food or water like some modern mammals. This book is part of a series that also includes the titles Giant Ape, Giant Ground Sloth, Dire Wolf, Saber-toothed Cat, and Wooly Mammoth. Teachers of science and biology will find this book to be a great tool to spark their students' interests in doing more research on the giant rhino. 2003, ABDO Publishing Company, Ages 8 to 11.
