" I would have loved this book as a kid...I was a dinosaur nut. However, some of the illustrations are a bit on the dated side--only a few of the smallest dinosaurs have feathers in the illustration, but the connection between dinosaurs and modern birds is highlighted.As for dino behavior, fighting and preying is the primary focus of this book. However, just like modern animals, dinosaurs no doubt had a wide range of interesting behaviors, beyond just violent ones. " said.

(Mommy's review from 6/8/10)

This is a fantastic book for toddlers who love dinosaurs. Unless your kid is really into the whole subject I'd pass - it's not for the casual kid with only an interest in Stegosaurs and T-Rex's.
Even though this isn't long by any means it tells, in the beginning, of the different periods, what they were called and what they're called when they're taken all together. The book then goes on to tell about certain dinaosaurs, in order of when they lived. Bakker included some of the dinos we all know but - and this is what Julia loves - he also included some lesser known dinosaurs. The Torvosaurus, the Stygimoloch, the Edmontonia, and the Torosaurus were all mentioned, along with a few other of the more unknown dinosaurs. At the end, it goes into how today we live with ancestors of the dinosaurs, namely birds and how they are the great-great-great-great=grandchildren. :) Very cute, super happy I picked this up, and Julia loves it so I know we'll be reading it over and over and over.
