This is a "Fact Tracker" book by Magic School House. I really like that they use the scientific names and then give the common name for the different eras of dinosaurs. The little facts on the sides of the pages are neat as they give quick tidbits of info or define terms. The chapters show how to organized the information about the dinosaurs. The diagrams in the illustrations are great and make the book seem more scientific and interesting than if it was just text. My favorite part is the pictures of the kids with the physical characteristics of some dinosaurs, it adds humor to the book. My 4 1/2 year old laughed so hard at the kid with the long neck.

I did not like this book only for the fact that I really do not have an interest for dinosaurs. I did learn a lot of information about the different types of dinosaurs though. The illustrations were very helpful when the author was describing the various dinosaurs. For example, most photographs are labeled in detail like one of the Brachiosaurus on pages 78-79. The writing all flows under its topic of the chapter. Mr. Osborne did not put plant - eater information in the flying creatures chapter. The message of the story was to inform the readers of facts that the author finds while researching topics.

The main message was to give factual information about dinosaurs to readers who are interested in learning further more about them. ( )

This is an excellent companion guide to the Magic Tree House "Dinosaurs Before Dark" book, or for any young readers interested in dinosaurs. Told in the same narrative format as the books, with sidebars from the book's characters, children will find this an easy read, although they might miss the bright pictures included in other dinosaur research books. This research guide includes pronunciation guides throughout the book, illustrations and "hand written" notes, a guide at the end to finding more information, websites and much more, which make it accessible to readers.

1. Main characters
Dinosaurs

2. Write the summary of the book.

Long ago, the world was very different than it is now. Today, all the land on earth is divided into seven continents. Millions of years ago, there was just one continent. Scientists believe that the first dinosaur was born over 225 million years ago. They believe that the last dinosaur died about 65 million years ago. Different kinds of dinosaurs lived in each period. The one we know best today lived during the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. That's over 60 million years before the first human was born.
Dinosaurs lived on earth for millions and millions of years. Then they completely vanished.What happened? Why did they all die? No one really knows for sure.

3. Write your feelings about the book in details.

But when they looked closely at the stone around the fossilized bones, they saw imprints of feathers. The dinosaur had wings(see p 104).

Bird must be descendant of dinosaur.

3. Write the words, phrases or sentences that impressed you most in the book and explain why they impressed you. Or you could write your questions about the book.

The first turtles were also on earth with the dinosaurs. They looked a lot like turtles today- except some were much bigger. Paleontologists have discovered the fossil of one turtle that was over 12 feet long!(see p 102)

I can't believe its size! ( )
