Dinosaur Dictionary for Kids: The Everything Guide for Kids Who Love Dinosaurs

We rated this book:


Probably nothing in the world fascinates kids as much as dinosaurs. There are plenty of books out there, but this may be one of the best to come along in quite a while. This should become the go-to book for middle-grade readers and above who have an interest in dinosaurs. After an excellent introduction with a note on using the dictionary and basic terms of the Mesozoic Era, it is neatly laid out in three major sections — Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous. Each section covers the dinosaurs in that period with an illustration, short write-up, name properly spelled with the pronunciation, when it lived, size, weight, where it lived, and what it ate. Interesting sidebars are scattered throughout, and each section has a period-specific article. But what else lived in the Mesozoic Era? Lots of things, and another section shows the fish, birds, bugs, and more with the same kinds of details. An article on how the dinosaurs became extinct is followed by an activities section, bibliography, and index. The writing is snappy and the information fun and fascinating. Kids will love this book and will wear it out reading it over and over. A winner!
