Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

DINO-MITE Informative and well designed, Prehistoric Life Explained: A Beginner's Guide to the World of Dinosaurs by Jinny Johnson leavens the usual dinosaur facts and figures with a clear and accessible text. Detailed color drawings depict skeletons, fossils, maps and of course dinosaurs in all their reptilian glory. The chapters are organized under the headings "Living Dinosaurs," which includes a chapter on "Family Life"; "Discovering Dinosaurs," which presents the findings of paleontologists; and "The Ruling Reptiles," which organizes dinosaurs by family rather than by period. A glossary explains all terminology, and an index enables quick reference.

Review by Publisher Summary 1

Budding paleontologists will be intrigued to learn about how scientists know as much as they do about the dinosaurs, in a study that examines dinosaurs as living creatures and compares them with animals alive today.
