Summary

Summary

Prehistoric animals may be gone, but they are not forgotten, and our understanding of them keeps changing! This series uses reconstruction artwork to show what these creatures looked like and how they lived in specific habitats with other animals. Maps, timelines, photos of fossils, and a fact file help explain how scientists have interpreted the evidence found about these creatures.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-4-These colorful titles feature large print, short sentences, and basic facts. Each one covers the creature's habitat, physical features, behavior, and food. Transition from one topic to the next is occasionally abrupt, but for the most part the presentations flow smoothly. Explanations are clear and simple, with language that kids should understand. Species size, for instance, is described in comparative terms; Brachiosaurus "was about as long as five minivans parked end to end!" Actual height and weight figures are given in the appended fact file. All of the books introduce the concept of paleontology early on, then refer often to the work of scientists in regard to known and assumed facts. Every page is illustrated, both with drawings of dinosaurs and with photographs of fossils, a layout that fits nicely with the way paleontology is worked into the texts. Though unspectacular in appearance beyond the automatic appeal of the subjects, these are solid choices that fill a constant demand from young readers interested in specific species.-Steven Engelfried, Beaverton City Library, OR (c) Copyright 2010.
