Grade 4-8?Put this encyclopedia on your "must get" list if your young patrons crave dinosaur information. This superb set is current, well organized, and provides interesting and comprehensive coverage of life in prehistoric times. The more than 200 alphabetically arranged entries cover familiar favorites such as Stegosaurus as well as less-known creatures such as Vulcanodon. There are also articles on prehistoric insects, plants, fish, and birds that help readers to reconstruct a whole environment instead of viewing dinosaurs in a vacuum. Related topics such as "Extinction," "Fossils," "Footprints," and "Evolution" are given equally good coverage. The format is user-friendly. Entries are color coded to let readers know if they cover bird-hipped or lizard-hipped dinosaurs, or if the article is on a general topic. Charts and diagrams communicate basic facts like a dinosaur's weight, habitat, and size. The full-color photos and illustrations are plentiful and eye-catching. Volume 11 includes a comprehensive index, time lines, a guide to "Dinosaur Hunters," and lists of museums and books for further reading. Unlike one-volume tomes such as Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs (Academic, 1997), these volumes can be used by several students at the same time. Best of all, the easy-to-understand text passes on the excitement of new information to appreciative readers too young to find or understand it in scientific journals.?Cathryn A.
