Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A three-dimensional T. Rex is smack in the middle of this educational and unique book. For children who learn best with visual aids, this approach to studying the fierce dinosaur will be ideal. Readers have the opportunity to examine body parts and systems individually because each page spread is devoted to one topic: the skeletal, pulmonary, digestive, reproductive, nervous, muscular and dermal systems. The dinosaur model is the focus of each page spread, and facts, questions, hypotheses, and learning activities are arranged around the model. The text condenses much complex information and presents it in a thought provoking way. Children will learn fascinating things; for example, the front arms of T. Rex would shatter if the huge (6-ton) dinosaur fell on them because they were so small. This is the kind of book parents and teachers will wish they had when they were studying dinosaurs-it makes learning fun. 2002, Silver Dolphin Books/Advantage Publishers Group, Ages 7 to 12.
