If you believe in the theory of the evolution and in a millions of years old world then you will be interested in this book. It explains how scientists work (mentions Richard Owen), how the word dinosaur came to be, what the process of naming dinosaurs is like(includes pronuntiations) and provides illustrations (includes iguanodon, compsognathus, saltopus, ornitholestes,brachiosaurus, brontosaurus, diplodocus,Trex, quetzalcoatlus,etc), It also illustrates with the bones that have been found and explains how the dinosaurs might have looked like,etc. talks about the catastrophies that could have happened to dinosaurs to wipe them out, and talks about the guessing game on trying to find out how dinosaurs were really like and how they lived according to discoveries that keep happening. Sure to keep a child who loves dinosaurs entertained and wanting to learn more.
Pretty good at telling what we know (knew) about dinosaurs, and what we don't, and how we know it. It does use that dreaded phrase "the dinosaurs ruled earth...". Stop that! There was no concept of sovereignty back then!
