Rating: 2 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review)

Genre:  Science book, children’s picture book

What did you like about the book? I appreciated the book’s organized  science  regarding dinosaurs, their eras and many varieties. The fact files helped condense and categorize complicated information, while the fossil puzzle, mazes, color sheets, word search, stickers, etc. was a fun reinforcement of these facts. The age range  of 5+ seems on target to do skills independently. A younger child could enjoy this dinosaur book too, with older guidance.

To whom would you recommend this book?  Dinosaur lovers, young and old

Who should buy this book? Parents, grandparents of dinosaur lovers, elementary school  librarians, preschool day care centers

Where would you shelve it ? Prehistoric Animals,

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No

Reviewer’s Name, Library (or school), City and State: Diane Neylon, Boston College, Chestnut Hill, MA
