I purchased this book for my soon to be 2 year old and although I'm pleased at the quality of the illustrations and all of the information, it is much too wordy for him right now and a little TOO informative. Regarding the pictures, they may be a little scary to some sensitive kids - the illustrations are wonderful but graphic and many of them depict pretty mean looking dinosaurs eating/biting each other as it tells about meat eaters, plant eaters, etc. No beating around the bush and sugar coating it so my advice would be that you know your own kid, so make an informed decision about whether it will scare them or not. Definitely for an older child though (probably 4 or 5).

This is currently my almost 5 year old son's favorite book. He has read it at least twice a day for the past month. He begged to take it to preschool to show his friends and almost every boy in his class was drooling. Other parents have now asked me for the author. It is written by a real paleontologist and it describes actual fossil excavations and what we've learned about dinosaur behavior from those digs. The information, however, is presented in an exciting, dramatic format which keeps our son completely mesmorized. You'll learn about dinosaurs you've probably never heard of (like Torvosaurus), and I really appreciate the phonetic spellings for pronunciation help.

I bought this book for a child and ended up ordering another one for myself! It is very well written, I think suitable for readers of all ages. Even little kids who can't read yet will probably enjoy the fantastic illustrations, especially if someone reads the text to them.

I've seen all the Jurassic Park movies two times each and I really wanted to learn more about dinosaurs and so I was going to buy a book and saw this one. It had very strong facts but it didn't have every dinosaur that there used to be millions of years ago. I'm not being negative but it didn't have all of them. Over all, I enjoyed the book!

My son loves dinosaur books and we are always on the lookout for more books and I love books that have the science facts he loves to hear as well as easy pronunciation guides that I like to read.
