Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Borges
If dinosaurs are your thing, this fact-filled book may be perfect for you! From beginning to end, this thirty-two page nonfiction text is crammed with interesting, unique, and fascinating facts about types of dinosaurs, habitats of dinosaurs, eating habits of dinosaurs, the life cycle of dinosaurs, and how dinosaurs became extinct. Through time from 230 to 65 million years ago and across the Earth, readers will learn about enormous and small dinosaurs, long-necked and duck-billed dinosaurs, raptors, meat eating dinosaurs, and ostrich dinosaurs. There are over 100 facts and definitions in this picture encyclopedia, and young children will be mesmerized by all the information, photographs, maps, and detailed illustrations. The text is well organized into a few simple categories, which are outlined in the table of contents. The clearly written and rich information about dinosaurs is greatly supported by the superb close-up full color illustrations on each page and these amazing illustrations help to extend meaning, enhance enjoyment, and support interpretation. The scientific name of each dinosaur is written in bold print beneath each illustration and there is also a pronunciation guide so that young readers can sound out each name such as (try-SAYR-uh-tops) for triceratops. Another nonfiction text feature that will help young readers enjoy and access this book is a listing of additional books to read and suggested websites to explore. This wonderfully appealing text about dinosaurs will be popular with any young reader who is fascinated by dinosaurs, and this is a text that can be enjoyed with or without an adult reading partner. Reviewer: Susan Borges; Ages 5 to 10.
