Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
There never seem to be enough books about dinosaurs and now there are early readers that come with 3-D glasses. Dinosaurs lived on the earth 215 million years ago (mya) and were around for about 150 million years. We humans have only been around for 1.7 million years. During different periods different types of dinosaurs roamed the earth. There were the relatively peaceful herbivores who were some of the biggest dinosaurs that ever lived. Huge meat-eaters like Giganotosaurus and fierce little dinosaurs like the Compsognathus. T-Rex is one creature that has intrigued scientists and kids alike; one of the most complete fossils can be found in the Field Museum in Chicago and I myself have seen this incredible creature's bones. Scientists are not sure if T-Rex was a predator who hunted prey or a scavenger. There are plenty of pictures and drawings to introduce a variety of dangerous dinosaurs as well as prehistoric monsters who lived in the seas. The book also introduces the most widely accepted theory regarding the demise of the dinosaurs and questions about coloration, what they ate and family structures. The 3-D effects are fun, but you can still get plenty out of the book without the glasses, so it does not lose its value if they are lost. A book with appeal beyond the normal age range for an early reader. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
