Editorial Review

A noteworthy review of Exploring Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Creatures from Children's Bookwatch on June 1, 2005

Cover: Ammonoids

Children of all ages have a fascination with dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures that became extinct millions of years ago only to be discovered as fossils today. ‘Exploring Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Creatures’ is an outstanding series (divided into three sets) that combines superb full color artwork depicting these long-lost animals with an informed and informative text written at a fourth grade reading level by Susan H. Gray making them of great interest and accessibility for young readers grades 3 to 8. Each 32-page book highlights a particular animal and includes a table of contents, informative sidebars, and introduction to the author, a glossary of key words and phrases, a ‘kid friendly’ index, suggestions for further study (including websites), and a geologic timeline with key features and creatures. Young readers will learn about the habitats of prehistory and the science of paleontology and fossil hunting. Although each title is available individually ($27.07/$18.95), the complete set of (thirty volumes, $812.10) is recommended and offered to school and community libraries at a substantial discount ($568.50). From the Allosaurus, Velociraptor, Meglasaurus, and Iguanodon, to Trilobites, Saber-Toothed Cats, Mammoths and Mastodons, ‘Exploring Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Creatures’ will prove an enduringly popular library acquisition and would make an ideal Memorial Fund selection.
