“T-Rex: Awesome Images and Fun Facts” by Samantha R. Knight is a pretty decent little book, chockfull of good information about the Tyrannosaurus Rex, with some unbelievable photographs that would seem to have been taken 65,000,000 years ago, of actual, living specimens. A number of other reviewers thought there should have been more photographs, and I have to agree that if there even ARE more photos of this quality, it would be great if they could be included in the book. Those photographs don’t just entertain the children; any adult of any age seeing those photos would be impressed. The information included is good, factual information, and educational even for adults. If the reading is over the heads of your children, you can just show them the pictures, and make up a quick summary of the information to tell your children.

My only concern is there were several typos in the copy I read. Minor typos, for the most part, such as a missing “s” at the end of a plural word, or sometimes a missing word. Overall, however, I think the book is very good. If your child is fascinated by dinosaurs – and I think most children are – this book would be an excellent choice for them. ( )

This book was filled with information. This seems to be written for kids in first or second grade. The only thing I found wrong with the book is the title leads you to believe there will be more pictures than there are. The only pictures are the ones at the beginning of each chapter. But overall my children (6 & 7) enjoyed it and want to read it again. ( )

This book is a great resource for what it claims to be (A Little Intro). The pictures in the book are good but not fantastic. I think kids would love this book if they are learning about dinosaurs. I like how the book gives all perspectives of all scientists when discussing the behavior of the T-Rex. I would read other books in Samantha R. Knight's series of Little Intros. One thing that bothered me was that in the book Knight tells us how some scientists think that T-Rex was an apex predator and others a scavenger, but in the conclusion of the book it is said T-Rex "IS" a apex predator. I think it should be written that it is thought by most... or the popular belief is that ... not "IS". Good work Samantha R. Knight! ( )

I actually read this on my own. This is a terrific little book. It covers a lot of theories on the trex and explains them so simply. My one wish was this was longer, I very much enjoyed learning so much about trex. ( )
