Format: Paperback
My daughter, almost five, loves this book. It locates the development of life on earth from early sea creatures through dinosaurs to humans and other mammals on an easy to understand prehistoric timeline beginning with the formation of the earth. A wonderful introduction to prehistory for curious youngsters and a simple review for adults as well. If you have a problem introducing your children to the basics of science, including the evolution of humans (even Christian ones) from apes, then yes, you'll have a problem with this book. For most parents though, this book is great. It's comprehensive, without being overly detailed, and the illustrations are perfect -- realistic enough to be engaging, but not frightening.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Stacy N. Averett on January 5, 2012
Format: Paperback
My daughter loves dinosaurs, so we got her this to help her learn more about dinosaurs, their names, the time periods they lived in, etc. Since this book calls itself an encyclopedia, I assumed that this basic information would be present. I also assumed that the information would be presented in an organized, logical way. I was wrong on both counts. The book is a fairy interesting picture book about dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals, and it gives a basic outline of the timeline of the animals. It gives very little else in the way of useful information. There are pictures of dinosaurs that are unlabelled, so when my daughter says, "What kind is that?" I have to say that I don't know. Very little information is given about the dinosaurs, and nearly all of it is about groups of dinosaurs (sauropods, etc.) rather than individual ones. I was very disappointed with this book; it if calls itself an encyclopedia, it should be arranged like one.

I'm giving it 3 stars because my 3 year old son likes it. My biggest disappointment is that it wan not hard cover as advertised. But I kept it because my son likes the book.
I agree with other reviewers that it's odd talking about evolution even though I agree with it; it's just hard to explain to my son. And I remember another reviewer also was disappointed that not all of the dinosaurs were labeled.
Overall, it's okay.
