Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Up-to-date information about a hundred dinosaurs fills the pages of this oversized book. The running head lets readers know what period the dinosaurs lived in. Each entry gives the creatures name with a pronunciation guide. The name is defined, the group it belongs to identified and facts are provided about its size, time period and where it was found. A brief description brings to light some of the dinosaur's unusual features or characteristics. A symbol identifies whether the dinosaur belonged to the lizard-hipped or bird-hipped group. The difference and importance of these characteristics are described in the introductory material. The real attraction of this book is the paintings by Walters. He is a professional dinosaur restoration artist whose work has appeared in museums, books and television specials. These dinosaurs look so real that it is hard to believe that they are not based on actual sightings. 2001, Courage/Running Press, $9.98. Ages 7 to 12. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
From The Critics
Showcased with the superb, science based artwork of Bob Walters, The Big Book Of Dinosaurs is an ideal introduction for young readers to the fascinating world of the dinosaur. Replete with up-to-date information on the latest discoveries in the paleontological study of dinosaurs, there are profiles of more than one hundred dinosaurs from all regions of the world presented an easy-to-read, the fact-filled text. Of special interest is the section devoted to how dinosaurs evolved over millions of years into some of the animals populating the earth today. The Big Book Of Dinosaurs is an enthusiastically recommended addition to any school or community library collection for children of all ages on the subject of the dinosaur!
