"Great pictures, and large print, will fascinate the young reader interested in learning about dinosaurs and compares their characteristic with animals living today. Glassard and wev information make this a good source for report writing as well." - Arlington Independent School District

NSTA Recommends - Elizabeth Hayward, Life/Environmental Science Teacher

"This volume in the Dinosaur Find series focuses on dinosaurs of the Badlands Digs of Montana. Students' inherent fascination with this topic makes it useful for teaching about adaptations, classification, and life cycles of animals; it's also a good topic for introducing young readers to the methods that field scientists use. Large-print type and vivid illustrations provide eye appeal for young readers. Other helpful tools are a color-coded key to the trophic levels of dinosaurs (meat-eater vs. plant-eater) and a size chart that compares the dinosaur to either a chicken, an adult person, or an elephant. To help readers further compare dinosaurs to modern species, the author highlights animals with similar features, behaviors, or niches. Also included is a pronunciation key, a glossary, an index, and a list of internet resources. The author centers this volume around Torosaurus. Several of the other dinosaurs highlighted in the book are referenced in relation to it—either in size, feeding habit, or possible interaction." - NSTA Recommends
