PreS-Gr 1-- Here are two easy books--one that explores some of the theories as to why the dinosaurs disappeared and another that capitalizes on the terror generated by the carnivores. The Dinosaurs' Last Days also chronicles some of their first days, and outlines newer theories about nests and parenting. Several theories of extinction are listed, but the explanations are very brief (one or two sentences). Meat-Eating Dinosaurs gives sample information about how various predators survived, and describes a battle between a Tyrannosaurus Rex and a Triceratops. The illustrations in both books use natural tones to portray these realistic, if not terribly ferocious, dinos. Picture indexes make locating the creatures easier, but the pronunciation guides here seem misplaced. These offerings may appeal to the very young who like dinosaurs, but they won't satisfy readers who expect large pictures of bloodthirsty monsters, and they'll be of little help to students writing reports. --Cathryn A. Camper, Minneapolis Public Library
