Review by School Library Journal Reviews

Gr 1-3–Sensationalized titles and action-packed covers should draw interest to this well-conceived introduction to dinosaurs. A sentence or two offers a key fact about the animal with follow-up data in a brief question-and-answer format. In each volume, a size chart, a fact box, and the phonetic pronunciation of the name, along with its meaning, provide further basics. Each spread features an effective full-color painting of the dinosaur in action; most add a smaller illustration showing bones, spot details, or modern animal relatives. A handy map and time chart identify where and when each species lived, rounding out the well-organized presentation. [Page 20]. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

Review by Publisher Summary 3

Scientists have found the bones of many small, pet-sized dinosaurs. Some of them, such as Sinosauropteryx (sine-oh-sor-OP-tur-iks), had fuzzy feathers. Did the feathers help it fly? Answer: No. Scientists think that the feathers on Sinosauropteryx helped keep it warm instead. This is just one of the many fascinating facts kids will discover as they learn all about the smallest creatures of the dinosaur age. Pet-sized Dinos uses an engaging question-and-answer format that makes reading fun for emergent and early readers. With large, full-color illustrations, a fascinating “Fact Box” on every two-page spread, and grade-appropriate text, this book is sure to be a hit with all young dinosaur fans.
