Written for readers ages 5-9 (grades K-3), each library bound book includes standard non-ficiton components for elementary non-fiction research: table of contents, glossary, index, pronunciation guide, booklist, and side bars, plus size comparison charts and safe internet sites at for further research. This series also includes five other new series extension titles: Allosaurus abd Other Dinosaurs of the Rockies, Coelophysis and Other Dinosaurs of the South, Dromaeosaurus abd Other Dinosaurs of the North, Maiasaurus and Other Dinosaurs of the Midwest, and Nodosaurus and Other Dinosaurs of the East Coast." - The Midwest Book Review

Children's Literature Comprehensive Database Newsletter

"Produced in the U.K., this "Dinosaur Find" series has been written by Scottish geologist and dinosaur-researcher Dixon, author of several other dinosaur books for children. Saurians are classified (in addition to their feeding habits) by the geographical areas of North America where they roamed millions of years ago; each volume starts with a brief description of that region in certain prehistoric eras. After introducing a variety of ancient inhabitants, a "Where Did They Go?" page offers several hypotheses about the dinosaurs' disappearance. Of the eight creatures included in this volume, some (Saurolophus, Lambeosaurus) will be known to enthusiasts; others, like Labocania, Panoplosaurus, and Aletopelta may be less familiar. Each creature's description is accompanied by a photo of an animal the author believes to occupy a similar ecological niche today: fierce predator Labocania, for example, is paired with the present-day timber wolf. Large square pages display dramatic dinosaur images--some are digital, some are acrylic paintings; especially eye-catching is one of a huge, toothy Albertosaurus ripping into a beached carcass. Useful features are a size comparison (in silhouette) to a chicken, a man, or an elephant for each dinosaur and a guide to the pronunciation of its name....the wide variety of dinosaurs, and the novelty of a regional approach will undoubtedly catch the attention of younger aficionados." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database Newsletter
