Praise for Kingfisher Dinosaur Encyclopedia, The

Newton's Book News
If you could only have one book of facts on this animal, The Kingfisher Dinosaur Encyclopedia would be the one to own. . . . [P]acked with interesting facts and the illustrations and photos invite the reader to peruse each page.
 
www.curledupkids.com/dinoency.html
Not only will The Kingfisher Dinosaur Encyclopedia satisfy the child’s desire for more concrete and detailed information about all things dinosaur. It also offers pictures and illustrations that are more in tune with actually “studying” the topic. . . . Affordable and filled with fascinating information, this is a book that young readers will love poring over in their spare time. It will also come in handy for research projects.
 
Publishers Weekly
This thorough, fact-filled dinoasur encyclopedia contains full-color digital images of dinosaurs, in order of their appearance through geological time, from the "first animal to have most of the characteristics of a dinosaur" (Herrerasaurus) through some of the last species to roam the earth, including Triceratops and Ankylosaurus. Profiles offer descriptions of various species' anatomy and speculations on issues like mobility, diet, and predation. Easy-to-read time lines and charts discuss the origins of and extinctions of species, while abundant photographs of skeletons, dig sites, and paleontologists at work integrate relevance and texture. The book's expansive scope and visually stimulating format should spark readers' curiosity while engaging imaginations. Ages 8-up.
 
NSTA Recommends
This all-encompassing dinosaur encyclopedia contains many unique and fascinating dinosaur facts. Each and every chapter is a page turner as the book travels through time from the rise of the very first dinosaurs to the behemoths of the Jurassic Period.
 
Library Media Connection
Unlike a traditional encyclopedia, this volume is organized into five chronological sections, from the time period of the first dinosaurs through the last dinosaurs of the Late Cretaceous period. . . . The visual appeal of the book will catch the eye of many readers and will be popular choice for research and enjoyment. Even if your library has numerous dinosaur resources, this is a welcome addition to any collection.
