(++++) "Bakker does a fine job of connecting prehistory with young children’s world today, by showing how mammals evolved during the age of dinosaurs and then began to dominate the world after dinosaurs were gone--thus explaining how “the dinosaur story is really our story, too.” The Big Golden Book of Dinosaurs
tackles a large and complex subject in clear, understandable form, and hopefully will serve as an introduction for yet another generation of young people to prehistoric creatures that continue to fascinate so many of us today. --INFODAD.COM, 10/31/2013
