Review by School Library Journal Reviews

Gr 2–5—Dinophiles, rejoice! This new set explores not only dinosaurs but prehistoric mammals and reptiles that aren't strictly classified as dinosaurs. Each book devotes a spread to a different creature, with a clear image and simple text. The author is clear to note that scientists can only speculate on certain pieces of information. Though the content is a bit spare for report writers seeking an in-depth look at specific creatures, these volumes are attractive introductions that should easily attract browsers. [Page 130].
