Children's LiteratureThe eight dinosaurs featured in this book lived in the forested areas of the earth millions of years ago. An Argentinosaurus ate shoots and leaves from trees by stretching its long neck up high above its large body. A Huayangosaurus had narrow, pointed plates on its back. The chicken size Microraptor flew through ancient forests searching for insects to eat. The Parasaurolophus was a plant-eater that was about the size of an elephant. The odd looking Stygimoloch had small arms, long legs, and many horns and spines. The large Therizinosaurus used its long claws to tear open ant nests and tree branches searching for a meal in the forest. Horns and armor protected the head of a Triceratops. This large animal bit off plants with its strong beak. The huge meat-eating Tryrannosaurus had tiny arms and large teeth-lined jaws. Each dinosaur is pictured in detail in its natural environment, and its size is compared to a chicken, a human or an elephant. A modern day animal that may have some similarities to each dinosaur is shown. The back of the book offers library references and a web site. This is an excellent choice for an elementary school library. 2005, Picture Window Books, Ages 6 to 10.
