This is an awesome book. My six year old loves this series of books. It even keeps the attention of my three year old. I'm doing all I can to collect all of these books, including all of the research guides. I don't homeschool anymore, but it would be a great addition to your school.

1. Main charactersDinosaurs2. Write the summary of the book.Long ago, the world was very different than it is now. Today, all the land on earth is divided into seven continents. Millions of years ago, there was just one continent. Scientists believe that the first dinosaur was born over 225 million years ago. They believe that the last dinosaur died about 65 million year ago. Different kinds of dinosaurs lived in each period. The one we know best today lived during the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. That's over 60 million years before the first human was born. Dinosaurs lived on earth for millions and millions of years. Then they completely vanished.What happened? Why did they all die? No one really knows for sure.3. Write your feelings about the book in details. But when they looked closely at the stone around the fossilized bones, they saw imprints of feathers. The dinosaur had wings(see p 104).Bird must be descendant of dinosaur.3. Write the words, phrases or sentences that impressed you most in the book and explain why they impressed you. Or you could write your questions about the book.The first turtles were also on earth with the dinosaurs. They looked a lot like turtles today- except some were much bigger. Paleontologists have discovered the fossil of one turtle that was over 12 feet long!(see p 102)I can't believe its size!

This is an excellent companion guide to the Magic Tree House "Dinosaurs Before Dark" book, or for any young readers interested in dinosaurs. Told in the same narrative format as the books, with sidebars from the book's characters, children will find this an easy read, although they might miss the bright pictures included in other dinosaur research books. This research guide includes pronunciation guides throughout the book, illustrations and "hand written" notes, a guide at the end to finding more information, websites and much more, which make it accessible to readers.
