NSTA Recommends - Elizabeth Hayward, Life/Environmental Science Teacher

"This volume in the Dinosaur Find series focuses on dinosaurs of the Dashanpu Digs in China. 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 Xiaosaurus. Several of the other dinosaurs highlighted in the book are referenced in relation—either in size, feeding habit, or possible interaction." - NSTA Recommends
