Editorial Reviews

Dansjp3page.com
"…this book is easily one of the most accurate and up-to-date works for children, although I would think that even most adults would enjoy this one too. It’s not cliched like some of the older dinosaur books, and well worth the $10.99 pricetag."
David Brock
Like most young children, I went through my own passionate discovery of that lost world we now call the Mesozoic Era, with its colossal and mysterious inhabitants. If this book had been available then, I would have been in eight-year-old heaven!

Jurassic Park Institute Dinosaur Field Guide has everything the budding dinosaur enthusiast could ever desire and more. The body of the book is devoted to one-page descriptions of every dinosaur from Abelisaurus to Zuniceratops. Each description includes a drawing of the animal, its food source, weight, friends and enemies, and location of discovery . But there's more. The book also covers the geology of the period, plant and other animal life, and how to conduct a fossil dig. Reference pages list museums, working field sites, discovery maps, books, and websites. For anyone with a question about dinosaurs, this book would definitely be the place to start!

What I liked most about Jurassic Park Institute Dinosaur Field Guide, though, is that is very “kid friendly.” All the text is carefully illustrated with marvelous drawings and photographs that make the science of paleontology as well as the creatures themselves more real for young readers. Equally praiseworthy is the fact that everything scaled to children. Each encyclopedic entry, for example, has a drawing comparing the size of the dinosaur, not to that of an adult, but to a typical child. Little girls or boys can imagine what it would have been like for them to walk amongst these giants. This attention to detail makes this book a marvelous resource.

Obviously, Jurassic Park Institute Dinosaur Field Guide is intended for an elementary audience, and I recommend that anyone teaching that age consider purchasing a copy for his or her own classroom. But those who teach older children and adolescents might want to consider owning a copy of this book as well because you never know when some budding Robert Bakker or Stephen Jay Gould is going to show up in one of your classes. You might want to consider having a copy for no other reason than the joy of reminiscing about that time in your own life when you, too, fell in love with the dramatic giants that once ruled the Earth.

Dino Land Book Review
"...definitely among the best children's books on the market."
JPAftermath.com
"The JURASSIC PARK INSTITUTE DINOSAUR FIELD GUIDE is definitely not your average book. This thing is cram-packed with pagefull's of information. The publishers definitely put every inch of this book to use. The book is truly unique. Page after page of dino-facts are sure to keep anyone busy, young or old. There's another thing unusual about this book, it doesn't seem to be afraid to point out scientific flubs in the Jurassic Park series. I would've expected such topics to be casually ignored, but this book makes sure every reader is 'set straight' on all the facts. This is definetely one of the most fun, colorful, and knowledgable books on dinosaurs for young people. This book gets 5 out of 5 claws. "
Prehistoric Times
"...with highly respected paleontologists and paleoartists like this, how can you go wrong? You can't and this book doesn't...A great read that includes a dinosaur poster!"
