melogna's review against another edition

Go to review page


Dinosaurs is a great science book for elementary and middle school children. The goes through different periods of dinosaurs such as the Jurassic and Triassic times and explains the different dinosaurs of this period. It also goes through more specific of dinosaurs such as senses, horns, heads, tails, claws, etc. It's pretty detailed for a younger science book. There is also a section on how scientists discover the age and different periods of the dinosaurs and how the fossils are found and put back together. There are also a ton of pictures throughout the book which helps with visually understanding the text since some of it may be a little difficult for readers. I think the language is age appropriate and the science seems to be carefully reviewed for children so that they understand. I would recommend this book for elementary and middle school children who are interested in science or dinosaurs, grades 2-8.
