Ancient Earth Journal: The Early Cretaceous: Notes, drawings, and observations from prehistory
This interesting (and big!) book is about lots of different kinds of dinosaurs that lived in prehistoric times. The main characters are all of these different dinosaurs. They are divided up into five kinds of groups: the theropauds, the sauropods, the ornithischians, the pterosaurs, and the first birds. The illustrations in this book showed dinosaur eggs, dinosaur skeletons, and drawings that compare dinosaurs to men. Wow, those dinosaurs sure look huge in the pictures! I liked seeing that comparison. The illustrations were drawings and paintings, not pictures, since there were no cameras then. What surprised me was that there is no Tyrannosaurus Rex in this book! I guess he lived at a different time. There wasn’t anything I didn’t like about this book. The part about one dinosaur eating another one was pretty yucky, though. A line from this book that I liked was, “For their enormous body size and weight, sauropods had tiny brains.” It is funny to think of something so big having a little brain. Boys and girls who like dinosaurs and would enjoy reading about some that are uncommon would like this book.
