Have you ever wondered about the dinosaurs who ruled the Earth so long ago? This book gives great examples of some of the dinosaurs who lived millions of years ago. It also has information about fossils in the first couple of pages and how the dinosaurs may have died in the last few pages. It is put in an easy to read format, and kids can learn a lot from it.
This is a good non-fiction book for independent readers. Ms Child’s writing style is kid-friendly as she explains things in an easy-to-understand way. I learned some things from this book too! Even though there is a lot of information contained in the book, it is put together well and is easy to read. The only thing I would change is the fact that there are little pictures – as in not enough, and they are too small. The pictures can be clicked on to open a new window (I read it on a Kindle Fire HD) where they are enlarged and you can then use the zoom feature to make them even bigger, but in my opinion larger pictures within the book would fit better with the high quality of Ms. Child’s writing. I think pictures are important in books meant for this age range. The cover is awesome though. The book is part of Ms. Child’s Animal Kingdom Series. I’ve read several of them and they all have the same great quality of writing and information. The other books are about sharks, snakes, horses and dolphins.
