Editorial Reviews

Review

...a mini museum between the covers of a book. [Eyewitness series] -- The New York Times

These books' striking visual impact will draw in even the most casual readers. [Eyewitness series] -- School Library Journal --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

From the Inside Flap

Full-color photos. "A fine addition to the series, combining stunning photos and a brief, lucid, logically organized text filled with fascinating details. Discussions of fossilization, moving continents, and fossils of the future will be particularly helpful for young scientists. Brief biographical sketches of prominent scientists, as well as information on plant and animal fossils (including early man), are also included."--Kirkus.   --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
As with the other "Eyewitness" books published by DK Publishing, this one is right on the mark for a beginner and seasoned fossil collector with pictures and descriptions that correllate very well with each other. Includes information of most all common fossils and a few of harder to find fossils. Not for researching significant hard-to-find or rare fossils. Worth the price and is also available in paperback binding.

I purchased this book for my niece's 10th birthday. She loved it but had already received one just like it. She couldn't stop talking about how great it was and was looking at the list on the back of other books in the series that she could get in exchange for this. Perfect for the kid who is interested in science and the outdoors.

As I thumbed through this book I was reminded of how interesting the world of fossils really is. I think this will put the evolving earth into a timeline that he can understand.

I'm a teacher and I find the Eyewitness books highly educational. I like the way the concepts are presented in a form without backgrounds. This gives clear facts to the reader without over taxing the attention span. The books are highly informative, presenting difficult concepts in comprehendable chunks that stimulate interest. I have almost the whole collection for my own children and they LOVE them!

I bought this book for my 6 year old who is very interested in fossils, rocks etc. and he just loves this book! There are many pictures and photographs with detailed descriptions and explanations. I think this book is still interesting for older kids and even for adults. At least I can still learn a lot from this book.
I would for sure recommend it for everyone who is interested in this subject.

I bought this book as a visual aid to help our Cub Scout Pack earn their geology belt loops and pins. The color photos are amazing and the eductaional content was perfect for kids and adults. I would highly recommend to others.

Yet another wonderful picture book from DK.. Although there are only 71 pages, they are packed with many full color photos of ancient life. Each photo has a brief explanation of the specimens and is more than enough to spark young imaginations onto the path of further discovery. I wish I had had this book to exite me when I was a kid. But even as an adult, it is very interesting and entertaining. The fossils include plants, animals, like birds, mammals, dinosaurs, fish and early man. There is even a geologic time chart. I would recommend this book to all ages.

My son became very interested in fossils after a trip to the La Brea Tar Pits (a five-star attraction for kids). I picked up this book to foster his interest. It is hugely detailed, and fascinating - reading it to a 6 year old is a matter of picking a few pages at at time. I wish my latin was better, I tend to stumble over the taxonomy naming.
