Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The mysterious ghost of the past haunts us again as we venture into the world of the Tyrannosaurus Rex. The dramatic illustrations and organization of yet another dinosaur books makes this title a must for any child's library at home or school. The simple text allows young readers to learn interesting new facts, others that they may already know but have forgotten or have escaped their reading in other dinosaur books. A devoted dinosaur reader will be riveted to the life-like pictures that the author creates through his dark and earthy illustrations to give the scary, eerie sensation of living during the prehistoric period. Be sure to check out the "T. Rex facts" and the "Learn More" in the back. The "Learn More" gives excellent books and websites for further investigation. The author also prepares newer readers with the "Words to Know" at the beginning so they have a vocabulary basis for a better learning opportunity and pronunciation keys for the harder-to-say words in the text. Even reluctant readers will keep their noses buried in this book as they look up the other titles about Diplodocus, Sinosauropteryx, and Triceratops in the "I Like Dinosaurs" series. These books support the National Science Education Standards for K-4 science. 2005, Enslow Publishing, Ages 5 to 12.
—Julia Beiker
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Each book introduces basic facts about a well-known dinosaur. A few sentences cover topics such as food, enemies, and related species. The author has a good sense of how much is too much for his audience. He mentions that "T. rex was only one kind of large, meat-eating dinosaur," then includes pictures of two others without going into details that might confuse young readers. The texts are simple, with a bit of extra liveliness added for descriptions of battles among these reptiles. Presentation is not always consistent: for T. rex and Diplodocus, sizes are included, along with a diagram with a human child for comparison, but this information doesn't appear in Triceratops. Accurate illustrations include a nice mixture of diagrams, line drawings, and color scenes. Many of them are set against what looks like a tan rock background, which lends an appropriately archaeological feel and contrasts nicely with the occasional blue landscaped settings. Some of the language is vague enough to be slightly misleading. "One day all of the dinosaurs died" (Tyrannosaurus Rex) sounds as if they all disappeared within 24 hours. Stating that "the world was much like it is today, except-there were no buildings, no cars, and no people-" (Tyrannosaurus Rex) implies that geography and flora have not changed in 65 million years. Overall, though, these titles do a good job of giving kids a solid first look at these intriguing creatures.-Steven Engelfried, Beaverton City Library, OR Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
