Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Denise Daley
Dinosaurs have long been a topic that appeals to children, both young and old. The format of this book is unlike traditional dinosaur books. Every paragraph has a heading that is posed as an interesting question. The reader can read each chapter from beginning to end or read the question and decide whether to read the answer. For example, the chapter on hadrosaurs contains headings such as why were hadrosaurs special, did all hadrosaurs have crests, why are hadrosaurs called "duck-bills," how did hadrosaurs care for their young, and how did hadrosaurs build their nests? In addition, each page contains several illustrations of the various dinosaurs, and there are even some illustrations of their fossilized footprints, eggs, or bones. The beginning chapters explain what a dinosaur was, what life was like before dinosaurs, and the first dinosaurs. The following chapters discuss the various types of dinosaurs, and the final chapter surmises their demise. The format of this interesting book will attract many children, even those few who previously may have had little interest in dinosaurs. It is part of the "What About . . ." series.
