Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Save old editions when you update primary-grade dinosaur collections with Aliki's revised Fossils Tell Of Long Ago, My Visit To The Dinosaurs, and Digging Up Dinosaurs. Have children compare old to new, discover the changes, and discuss why they think those changes took place. My Visit to the Dinosaurs offers an introduction to these extinct creatures via a tour through a museum exhibit. 1994 (orig.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2 Like the original edition, this book introduces young children to dinosaurs through a visit to a natural history museum. The simple text explains how paleontologists discovered dinosaur bones and reconstructed the reptiles' skeletons from their fossilized remains. Also included are brief descriptions of the more well-known dinosaurs, accompanied by full-color illustrations of the creatures as they once appeared. The text of this edition varies little from that of the earlier book. It's the new illustrations that make this revision worth purchasing; Aliki's clear, full-color pictures provide just enough detail to maintain young children's interest without confusing them. Similar in content to Parish's Dinosaur Time Harper, 1974 and Milton's Dinosaur Days Random, 1985, Aliki's book is slanted more toward a young listening audience rather than beginning readers. Along with Aliki's Digging Up Dinosaurs 1981 and Fossils Tell of Long Ago 1972, both Crowell, this book gives preschoolers an excellent introduction to paleontology and to the giant reptiles of long ago.
