School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-These tidily written titles, done in a chatty style, present the facts that young dinophiles want to know. One covers the pterosaurs and pterodactyls, extrapolating some behaviors using modern birds as models, and speculates on beak shapes and sizes in the food-gathering process. The other looks at how paleontologists determine living speed when only the fossil record remains, and cites some prime examples of dinosprinters, such a Gallimimus and Troodon. The realistic, soft illustrations eschew the brightly colored/patterned bodies imagined by many artists, but are lively enough to please budding paleontologists. Simple, eye-catching, and informative, these books will fly off the shelves.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
