4.0 out of 5 stars VERACITY OF VELOCIRAPTORS 17 Sep 2014
By Barbara Ann Mojica - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author sets out to set straight the facts about velociraptors made famous in the Jurassic Park movie, which are in many ways misleading. They were not huge animals, probably the size of a large chicken; they were appear to have been solitary animals, and they were warm blooded, not cold blooded like the large dinosaurs roaming the earth at that time.

The velociraptor’s name means swift seizer and it flourished in the Cretaceous period about 75 million years ago, shortly before the dinosaurs were wiped from the earth by some disaster, probably a meteor. It probably did not live in the United States but in a hot, arid climate like central Asia because no skeletons have been found in the U.S. Their bones are hollow like that of a bird They probably had feathers, not the scales of cold blooded reptiles. The animal probably stood only two or three feet tall and weighed about 30 pounds similar to the size of a human toddler. Characteristics that the movie presented accurately include the over-sized back feet claws and the serious teeth. The velociraptor had a large brain compared to most dinosaurs and fairly sophisticated sight, hearing and smelling. They probably foraged and hunted for food and had a lifespan of about twenty years. With their long back tails, velociraptors probably had a good sense of balance and could jump very well.

So are we surprised that Hollywood actually modeled the dinosaur in the movie on the larger deinonychus, but changed the name to velociraptor because it had a better ring to it? Children and adults who are into dinosaurs now have the real scoop. I read the kindle version on an HD Fire, but the photos could not be fully appreciated. Print versions show better detail. Recommended for ages eight and up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Useful 20 Jan 2014
By Barbara L - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I’ve been an early educator teacher, including public school Pre-K and Montessori, for many years. When I taught I constantly searched for this kind of book. Many children in this age group are fascinated by dinosaurs. This book is a perfect read-aloud for that age group as well as a great research resource for older children. I loved the question format: “how good were their senses, were they hunters or scavengers”. The illustrations were true to how we in this day and age believe the terrain of the dinosaur era was. The book is the correct length for read-a-louds and for children doing research.
3.0 out of 5 stars A compact set of facts well present 19 Jan 2014
By Tony - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
The book will appeal to the youngsters fascinated by all things Dinosaurs. It sets out facts (or best theories) about the Velociraptor and debunks so Hollywood fiction.

The style is to present short punchy titbits of fact, accompanied by a picture. Not sure how 'fun' the facts are or how 'cool' the pictures are. The pictures really need a colour screen to do them justice, but one thing I did find unhelpful was the constant change between the pictures showing them 'feathered' and 'scaly'. The book says they were probably feathered rather than scaly and I would have like the pictures to back that up throughout.

All in all a nice book to ad to your Dinosaur library if you want a quick set of basic information.
