Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Part of a series of books asking "I Wonder Why" about anything from reptiles to space to the ocean, this particular text on dinosaurs is an eye-catching and informative book sure to delight both younger and middle readers. Unlike other books similar in content, the question/answer format of this text provides a sensible organization for children as they take knowledge from the beginning of the book and build on it throughout their reading. Also unique to this series are the types of questions; for example, while the book begins with the expected types of queries like "How many dinosaurs were there?" and "How long ago did dinosaurs live?" we also get intriguing questions like "Which dinosaur attacked with switchblades?" and "Why did Iguanodon stick its thumbs up?" Realistic illustrations that detail the specific types of dinosaurs as well as cartoons along the margins of most pages allow the author to provide additional factual information in support of the answers to each question. I highly recommend this book and this series as ones from which students will learn a great deal in a highly enjoyable manner. 2003, Kingfisher,
