Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joan Elste
The Random House Dinosaur Travel Guide is chock-full of interesting items for the dinosaur lover. This book includes enough fascinating facts to keep the reader occupied for days on end. It is a marvelous collection of not only dinosaur museums across the United States and Canada but literally everything a child could ever wonder about where in their very own state dinosaur bones could be found. There is something interesting and unique in every chapter. The pages are clearly titled by state with a "Bone Digger Bonus" included, written by experts in the field, and the information would be an inspiration for any child to explore. This travel guide also includes not only addresses and phone numbers for further research but also Web sites and E-mail addresses. And if that all isn't enough for the dinosaur lover, there is a shopping guide in the final pages that lists dinosaur-related items such as art, clothing, games, jewelry, and much more. This is definitely a fun book for kids to learn everything they might ever want to know about dinosaurs.

Gr 6 Up-The author surveys more than 300 dinosaur sites state by state in the U.S. and province by province in Canada. Entries include addresses, phone numbers, Web sites, and short descriptions of exhibits. For each state, there is also a "Bone Digger Bonus," which tells a story about a particular exhibit or type of dinosaur found there. But this is much more than just a travel guide. A shopping section tells where to find dinosaur-themed candy, stickers, and pajamas. There is an extensive list of Web sites, enough for kids to do their traveling via computer, if that's the only way they can go, and contact information for the Geological Survey Office in each region. Pencil drawings of all types of prehistoric creatures decorate the pages. This is a wonderful resource; it's useful as an introduction to places of interest and a great armchair guide to the world of dinosaurs.-Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
