Overview


Lucky boys and girls who delve into this exciting box of board books probably won't recognize the word paleontology, but that is the branch of science they will be discovering. Six miniature books, each one shaped like a prehistoric animal, combine words and color pictures to describe animals from the six important prehistoric eras that came and passed before the first human beings were alive. The mini-books are titled:

  • Before the Dinosaurs—600-248 million years ago
  • The First Dinosaurs —248-205 million years ago
  • Jurassic Dinosaurs —205-144 million years ago
  • Rule of the Dinosaurs —144-75 million years ago
  • The Last Dinosaurs —75-64 million years ago
  • After the Dinosaurs —64 million years ago-today

    Kids are introduced to plant-eating creatures like the Diploducus and the armor-plated Stegosaurus. They'll also find pictures and simple descriptions of meat-eaters or carnivores, such as the fearsome Tyranosaurus and—in the post-dinosaur period—Smilodor, the saber-toothed cat. The books are printed and illustrated in color and are packaged in a colorful and sturdy box that features illustrated time charts on its inside flap and bottom panel.

    Six mini-books come inside Dinosaur World: An Introduction to Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Life by Clint Twist, each categorizing a different prehistoric era. The mini-books, which fit into the case like puzzle pieces in the shape of a creature from the era they cover, begin with "Before the Dinosaurs" and end with "After the Dinosaurs," in which kids learn that the largest meat-eating mammal was the size of two polar bears and resembled a dog, but it "was actually related to the ancestors of whales!"
