Booklist - 02/01/2018 In this companion to Bone by Bone (2013) and Tooth by Tooth (2016), young children from diverse cultures walk through a museum and notice how dinosaurs had some of the same bones (now fossils) as humans do today. The real fun, however, comes from the dinosaurs’ extra bones. With some of these extra bones attached to them, the children imagine, for instance, “What if you had a bony ridge that rose up from the back of your skull and three horns poking up from the front?” Turning the page reveals they’d be a triceratops. Digitally enhanced acrylic artwork shows the full skeleton, while a brief description provides basic facts about the dinosaur. The long-necked, long-tailed diplodocus adds a dash of drama, requiring dual gatefolds to contain its length. In addition to the land-dwelling dinosaurs, flying and dolphin-like dinos are included. The book concludes with birds and a short discussion of this type of living dinosaur. A plethora of back matter, including dinosaur groups and a pronunciation guide, completes this engaging dino collection. - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
