Science Books & Films - Charles Watt

"These books are a sampling of the Dinosaur Find series published by Picture Window Books. Each book describes a selection of eight dinosaurs representative of the book's theme. Each dinosaur is briefly described and illustrated in a two-page spread. The first page of the spread gives the reader the dinosaur's name, followed by a helpful guide to its pronunciation. A symbol near the name indicates whether the bearer was a meat eater or plant eater. A short paragraph briefly describes the dinosaur. A photograph and brief description of a modern animal that has a way of life similar to that of the dinosaur provides the reader with a connection between the unfamiliar dinosaur and the more familiar animals of today. A silhouette of the dinosaur next to a silhouette of a familiar animal (chicken, human, elephant) gives the reader some idea of the size of the dinosaur. The second page of the spread is an illustration ( a painting or a computer generated image) of the dinosaur in its environment. A text box within the illustration provides a sentence or two of additional information about the dinosaur. Each book has a table of contents, followed by a two page introduction. Each book ends with a "Where did they go?" page that briefly describes some possible explanantions for the extinction of dinosaurs. A one page glossary, a "To Learn More" section that lists a few books and a Web resource, and an index conclude the book. These books would be suitable for elementary school readers. The information provided is very basic and would probably not be much help in writing a report on dinosaurs. Information about when and where the dinosaurs lived is lacking. The illustrations in each book are the work of two different illustrators, one who painted the dinosaurs and their environment and the other who used compter-rendered illustrations. The two different styles are mixed at random within each book, The computer-rendered illustrations vary in quality from fairly lifelike to artificial looking, video gmae caricatures. In general, the paintings are much better. The number of dinosaur titles available for young readers probably approaches the number of known dinosaur species. there are much better dinosaur books for young readers on the market." - Science Books & Films
