Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
School Library Journal, December 10, 2013

“Directly addressing readers, this guide challenges them to ‘assemble the world’s greatest collection of dinosaur fossils,’ taking them through the preparations for a field study then back in time to the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods. . . . Watch this one fly off the shelf.”

GeekDad, October 22, 2013

“I really like How to Be a Dinosaur Hunter. It gives a pretty complete picture of dinosaur studies on a kid’s level, but covers quite a lot of facts that other dinosaur books for kids likely miss, and does it all with quite a sense of humor.”

School Library Journal
★ 01/01/2014
Gr 3–6—This is a fact-filled romp for anyone fascinated by dinosaurs. Assuming that readers are embarking on a journey through both time and space to learn about and find dinosaurs, this guide supplies tips for budding paleontologists on everything from what to pack to how to outrun an enormous meat eater. Children are invited to explore three periods of time when dinosaurs ruled the Earth: Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous. Scientific data is made easily accessible, including new discoveries. Also included are interesting facts about the many scientists and fossil hunters involved in past and present archaeological expeditions. The author suggests places to visit worldwide, including natural history museums and special collections. The full-color, cartoon illustrations offer numerous sidebars with supplemental facts and asides filled with puns, jokes, and other humorous elements that will appeal to children. Though the volume is best suited for casual browsing, a thorough index makes it a useful tool for research projects as well. Recommended for most collections.—Eva Elisabeth VonAncken, formerly at Trinity-Pawling School, Pawling, NY
