Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The latest Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science book is written in the lively and informative style of Aliki's Digging Up Dinosaurs and Dinosaurs Are Different, with the added personal perspective of My Visit to the Dinosaurs. Here Aliki helps children understand that our knowledge of dinosaurs began less than 200 years ago, when Mary Ann Mantell discovered fossilized dinosaur teeth in a pile of rocks near an English quarry. The major findings of other scientists are included as well. Aliki has a perfect sense of just which details will most delight her readers: dinosaur footprints, a banquet held inside a life-size dinosaur model. Full-color illustrations of curious, questioning people and their discoveries make a treasure hunt of this fact-filled volume. Ages 4-8.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2 There's nothing intrinsically wrong with this latest Aliki contribution to dinomania; it's just that it all seems a bit familiar. Some of the information appears to be culled from Ali ki's earlier (and admittedly, drabber) books. Other pages seem similar in con tent to Aliki's more recent volumes. Still, she has managed to provide a sim plified explanation of the history of paleontology in a format that even pre schoolers will comprehend. She reiterates much basic information about the separation of the continents, earth's time periods, and how scientists reconstruct dinosaurs from fossilized bones. Little information is provided about more recent dinosaur discoveries. Like the text, the illustrations in this book are reminiscent of other recent Aliki books on prehistoric life. Overall, this is a good book, but one which may duplicate information avail able in others. Cathryn A. Camper, Minneapolis Public Library

If your kids love dinosaurs/paleontology, PLEASE get them Aliki books. They are SUPER wonderful. I grew up with them, and despite a little outdated information and dinosaur posing (from old museums), they are still a treasure.

Format: Paperback
DINOSAUR BONES is a short book about dinosaurs that is at the mid-elementary reading level. It's a book with fun but not spectacular artwork.

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.
