Summary

Summary

Dinosaurs roamed Earth millions of years ago, but they still fascinate kids today. The mysterious lives of these "terrible lizards" often elicit a volley of questions. Were all dinosaurs fierce? How fast could they run? Did dinosaurs fly? Were they meat-eaters, plant-eaters -- or both? In What Did Dinosaurs Eat?, the simple question-and-answer format and realistic illustrations answer some of the most common queries kids have about dinosaurs. This book also incorporates a glossary of dinosaur names and how to pronounce them, as well as a listing of dinosaur-related Web sites.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-4-A slavering Tyrannosaurus with bloody jaws is the eye-catching cover lure for this slim question-and-answer book. Fourteen frequently asked questions are each given a spread complete with a brief one-paragraph answer and a dramatically realistic illustration of a suitable saurian. Teeth, spikes, claws, horns, and whiplike tails stalk across the pages in a steady parade sure to entice young dinophiles (one pterosaur is included). A closing page lists the names, pronunciations, and meanings of the reptiles depicted. While there are many better dinosaur books on this level already on your shelves (and this one provides nothing in the way of new information), still, with Sauv?'s nifty acrylics as bait, it won't gather any dust shelf-sitting.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
