Children's LiteratureThe eight dinosaurs described in this book roamed the deserts of the earth millions of years ago. The very large Carcharodontosaurus ate animals it killed with its sharp teeth. The Coelophysis roamed in groups to hunt large animals. The huge, plant-eating Ouranosaurus had a fin down it back and along its tail. Another desert dweller was the birdlike Oviraptor that laid eggs in a nest. The large Plateosaurus traveled around the desert searching for plants to eat. A Protoceratops used its sharp beak to cut off plants to eat. With a single claw on each small arm, the little Shuvuuia dug in the ground for insects to eat. A feathered Velociraptor attacked other animals for food. Each dinosaur is pictured in detail in its natural environment, and its size is compared to a chicken, a human or an elephant. A modern day animal that may have some similarities to each dinosaur is shown. The back of the book offers library references and a web site. This is an excellent choice for an elementary school library. 2005, Picture Window Books, Ages 6 to 10.
