Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
The Velociraptor is very small dinosaur in size compared to an Apatosaurus. Read about some basic physical features and eating habits of the Velociraptor, a speedy little prehistoric creature. The general description includes the purpose of the tail but does not elaborate how the tail helps in making quick turns when running. Children may need some guidance in reading to further comprehend the information in the book. For instance, students may need support when examining the size chart to begin to understand the actual length and weight of this creature that is compared to a couch, human, and collie dog. Adults may need to introduce some of the text features such as the table of contents, chapter headings, pronunciation guide, glossary, and index. Throughout the book, there are color illustrations to provide some text support. For brief information about other dinosaurs, readers may wish to check on the other books in the "Rookie Read-About Dinosaurs" series. Those children who are interested in learning further information about dinosaurs may want to explore the suggested web sites. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
School Library Journal
K-Gr 1—Reinforcing the understanding that scientists don't really know what dinosaurs looked like, the illustrations in these small volumes reflect their many possible appearances. The prehistoric subjects are depicted with broad ranges of colors, skin textures and feathers, etc. The art varies widely in style and quality of reproduction and is overall dramatic. Readers in search of gore will find plenty of it in Velociraptor as well as in one scene in Tyrannosaurus Rex. The texts are written in dry generalities and close with boilerplate spreads about dinosaur "bones" (meaning fossils) and notes to adults suggesting activities.
