Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1–3—A new approach to an old (but always popular) subject. Each spread is dedicated to a grouping of dinosaurs, for example, the theropods or ornithopods. Colorful, cartoon drawings of dinosaurs from these groups march across the pages along with children of varying race and ethnicity either beside them or on their backs, with the intent of showing the size of the reptiles in relation to the youngsters. Rhyming text follows along with this fictionalized portrayal of dinosaurs parading. A substantial border runs along the bottom of the page naming each dinosaur pictured and revealing facts about it, including where it was discovered and when it got its name. The last page gives characteristics of each group of dinosaurs plus information about how paleontologists name them. Although some interesting facts can be obtained from the borders and back page, the rhyming text is weak.—Christine Lindsey, Lake Superior Primary School, Ashland, WI

My son is obsessed with dinosaurs. He constantly asks the names of different ones and notices minor differences to tell them apart. This book has saved this momma! It doesn't have a super in depth story-line, but there is enough to satisfy him at 3 yrs old. It has many different kinds of dinosaurs and I LOVE that it shows a side-by-side comparison of other similar dinosaurs and even has pictures of children walking next to or riding the dinosaurs to show just how big some of the dinosaurs were! It also has facts about each one like the meaning of the name, what era they are from, size and where they were found. We had checked this out at the library at first and I had to buy a copy before we returned it because we read it almost EVERY night!

I have a six-year-old grandson who loves dinosaurs, and I think this picture book was written for him. I love so many things about it. It rhymes, which is great for reading aloud to pre-readers. It has facts, for older kids who want to know all the details. The children marching in the parade (yes, there really is a parade) are multi-ethnic, because the dinosaurs came from all over the world, too. I love that! And it goes with my multi-ethnic family. I also love that the marching kids show just how big those dinosaurs really were -- a number one question on the mind of most young dinosaur fans. This is a great "first book about dinosaurs," and is sure to be a favorite in my family. Maybe yours, too! A+++ to author Kelly Milner Halls and illustrator Rick Spears.

Format: Hardcover
Dinosaurs come in all sizes--big and small. This is a fun book that takes a child's fascination with dinosaurs and turns it into a learning tool for big, small, long, short, and much much more. For instance the double page spread on the T.Rex says "Theropods once ruled the day, and T. rex was the king, they say." The page shows the large T.Rex and smaller dinosaurs. It gives pronunciations and comparison examples of larger (although there are none for the T.Rex), smaller and smallest dinosaurs. Each dinosaur has information about its length, where it was discovered and its nickname.

Kids who like dinosaurs will love the pictures and the rhymes and the easy to disseminate the information!
