Booklist - 05/01/2017 Open this book and enter the world of Dr. Scott, a paleontologist on a mission to learn all he can about dinosaurs. He takes the reader through a brief explanation of the necessary tools needed to dig for fossilized dinosaur bones, how to identify a fossil (you can use your tongue!), and how to transport the fossil back to the lab. Each full spread has a question (such as, “Where are fossils found?” or “What did dinosaurs eat?”) that is answered in a jovial tone for the younger set, along with color photographs or illustrations that include additional facts in inset boxes. A basic glossary finishes out the book, which would have additionally benefited from a further reading list. A closing section detailing how readers might become paleontologists is fueled by activities rather than the specific education required to perform the job. This basic introduction to paleontology is a good start for the child who loves dinosaur picture books and is ready for the science behind these majestic (and sometimes minuscule) creatures from the past. - Copyright 2017 Booklist.
