Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Iguanodon was one of the very first dinosaurs every discovered. The author of this little book tells us a good deal about this dinosaur's body, what the plant-eater ate, and why it is no longer roaming the face of the earth. He also gives us a picture of the Iguanodon's world-the other creatures that lived at that time and what the world might have looked like then. Daniel Cohen also tells us where fossils of these dinosaurs have been found and explains how paleontologists are studying these dinosaurs today. There is also the story of Richard Owen, a British scientist who studied Iguanodon and who invented the word "dinosaur." Owen also made the very first dinosaur model. The information in this book is well presented and interesting, but the photographs and illustrations are unfortunately dull and average at best. At the end of the description about the Iguanodon there is a "Hands One" activity, which gives the reader the opportunity to make a drawing of a dinosaur. This activity is followed by a glossary. At the back of the book the reader will find a bibliography, and an index. In addition, the author explains how to use Fact Hound, a special Internet search engine. This book is one in the "Bridgestone Science Library." 2003, Bridgestone Books, Ages 6 to 9.
