Reviews

Booklist - Julial Smith

"A simple way of presenting a lot—and often overlapping pieces—of information, the bite-size facts and attention-getting illustrations make this book great for browsing and reluctant readers. A glossary, index, and additional resources will aid readers in making their own T. rex discoveries." - Booklist

School Library Connection - Nelda Brangwin, Educational Reviewer, Bellevue, WA

"These books are presented in a new format; historical timelines showing how paleontologists learned about the featured dinosaur. . . .Because of the approach used, this series needs to be added to collections to highlight the study of dinosaurs. Libraries need to give budding scientists a peek into how scientific discovery is always evolving." - School Library Connection
