Do You Know Dinosaurs?

We rated this book:


This book, Do You Know Dinosaurs?, is fun to read because of the funny drawings of dinosaurs who talk to each other and have, use and wear things that people do. The pictures show dinosaurs wearing ties, hats, sports jerseys, shoes, swimsuits, inner-tubes and other things that would be silly for a dinosaur. One page gives information about oviraptor dinosaurs and the picture on the page shows an oviraptor cooking eggs in a frying pan. On another page that tells about ornithomimus dinosaurs, there is an ornithomimus delivering pizza. These drawings help me to remember the facts about these different types of dinosaurs, like Oviraptor dinosaurs ate the eggs of other dinosaurs and Ornithomimus dinosaurs were the fastest running dinosaurs.

The drawings also make this book funny by showing the dinosaurs talking or thinking. One page that gives information about one of the longest dinosaurs on record, the Diplodocus with a really long neck, shows a lot of different types of dinosaurs trying to watch a movie but the diplodocus dinosaurs are sitting in the front row. A smaller dinosaurs in the back row looks upset in the picture and says “We can’t see! Sit down!” and one of the diplodocus dinosaurs from the front bends his neck to turn his head around and says “We are sitting down.” That is silly.

The written part of the book is informational and gives interesting facts. One thing that I didn’t already know that I learned from reading this book is that there were giant insects who lived during the same time as when dinosaurs lived. I am glad that there aren’t any giant insects anymore. I’m glad that there aren’t dinosaurs alive now too. That would be scary.

I like learning about dinosaurs, though, and I enjoyed learning from reading this book. The glossary at the end of the book helped me too by telling me what some of the words in the book meant. The very last page in the book shows other animals that I want to read about too. It shows the other titles from the book series of this book, Do You Know Dinosaurs? and I want to read them all.
