Reviews

PreS-Gr 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

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. (February)
