Dinosaurs Can’t Roar

We rated this book:


Dinosaurs are an all-time favorite for kids, and kids think they know all about these ancient creatures, but scientists are learning more about dinosaurs all the time. Author Layla Beason has written a well-researched text set all in rhyme and chock full of theories and newly-discovered facts about several popular dinosaurs. It begins with a cute, cartoon T-Rex meeting a nice paleontologist who starts to dispel commonly-held beliefs about the T-Rex such as that he really isn’t tall but more horizontal than vertical. More than that, while he has some scales, he also had quite a lot of feathers! The paleontologist goes on to talk about Triceratops, Stegosaurus, and Brontosaurus and their differences from what is commonly believed, but most surprising (especially if one has ever seen Jurassic Park) is that dinosaurs rumbled and hissed, but did not roar. The writing is charming and fun. The illustrations by Mariano Epelbaum are bright and cartoony and lots of fun. Two pages of back matter have more comprehensive information about the facts covered in the main text. This book will fascinate youngsters and really get them thinking about facts they probably didn’t know before.
