The book talks about how people discovered the existence of dinosaurs. How people found 'strange bones' that they couldn't classify, and how this lead to discovery the ancient world of dinosaurs.
Continental drift and rock stratification is touched up. And Aliki talks about how dinos first appeared in the late Triassic period and how they grew larger and the centuries passed. Triassic Cretaceous, and Jurassic periods are introduced.
WHAT I LIKED about the book is the presentation that seems to allow children to learn as much as they are ready for, or interested in. They can just skim and pick up on general ideas, or they can look and study the charts and learn more details, like which era comes first.
Finally, I love that the book ends with the mysterious WHY of dinosaur extinction. I would hope that this would leave young dino enthusiasts with the idea that there is scientific work left to be done in the field, and that they could be a scientist-discoverer when they grow up.
