The books "Dinosaur Bones" by Aliki is a non-fiction book that discusses what Dinosaurs were, and how we know so much about them. I enjoyed this book because I felt its language was clear and simple. Non-fiction books, especially thought about science can become confusing easily. But this book kept the ideas and content it discussed simple and clear which made the book much easier to understand and made it much more enjoyable. I also enjoyed how the characters drawn in the illustrations truly looks as though the w fascinating with dinosaurs and all the new information they were learning. That being said I felt as thought the illustrations could have been a lot better. They are constructed using many dull colors and do not look realistic or very interesting for that matter. I feel as though if the illustrations had been better the overall. The big idea in this book is that even though dinosaurs lived millions of years ago scientists used fossils to learn about how they lived.

This book is about dinosaurs. It talks about how long ago the dinosaurs lived, how do we really know they existed, what they looked like, and what their world was like. The book also talk about Mary Ann Mantell who found a gian tfossil of a tooth and how that started search for animal bones. It also talks about the different types of dinosaurs, what they ate, and etc. This book was very interesting.
