"Written by dinosaur expert Dougal Dixon, this addition to the “Dinosaur Find “ series examines the general characteristics of tsintaosaurus and seven other duck-billed dinosaurs, how they lived in the prehistoric world and what they have in common with today’s animals. Each two-page spread introduces a new dinosaur with one page dedicated to the illustrators’ rendering of that species in its natural surroundings. A caption on each picture page adds additional facts that are not found in the text. For each dinosaur, we are given the pronunciation, a symbol as to whether it is a meat eater or plant eater and a paragraph of information specific to that dinosaur species. Although the book is intended for grades K-3, the text is written at a level better understood by a slightly older child There is a size comparison chart on each two-page spread that has a silhouette of the dinosaur next to that of either a chicken, an adult person or an elephant. A picture of a modern-day animal with a caption relating it to the dinosaur help the reader see similarities between the two. “The modern kangaroo hunches down to eat from the ground, just like Lambeosaurus once did” and “The modern flamingo nests with a large group, much like Orythosaurus did long ago” are examples of these captions. The book contains a table of contents, an index and a glossary, which would be easier to use if the words contained in the glossary were shown in bold when they appear in the text. For further research, we are referred to the FactHound website and given a code to type in. This publisher-maintained website offers a safe and reliable way to find other websites related to topics introduced in each book. While the school librarian may not buy the whole series, this book will be appreciated by early school-age dinosaur enthusiasts so it would be worthwhile to pick several titles to add to the elementary collection." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database
