This is a good book for kids starting to read, that have an interest in dinosaurs. My son likes the part about how nobody knows what color dinosaurs were.

2.0 out of 5 stars Major scientific errors! Terrible! 1 May 2003
By Dave in Hagerstown - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a classic book for young readers and I had thought it would be accurate on the level of the readers. I looked back at a copy with a publishing date of 1985 and I was shocked when I saw the apatasaurus called the old, incorrect name of "brontosaurus." But that was not the worst error! Many older books have the name wrong 9and thus the wrong head, but that can be a minor thing.
But it got worse when it showed the "brontosaurus" as having nostrils on top of its head, which is actually a feature of the Brachiasaurus. And then having it hid from the Allosaurus (correct predator, at least) under water perpetuates the swamp-dwelling, water-immersing behavior model which is again incorrect.
If only those offending pages could be excised it would get four or five stars. The book does show the flying and swimming contemporaries of the dinosaurs; correctly identifying them as not being "dinosaurs." That could be more explicit but the point is made, even if subtly.
Now I see above there is a new publishing date. I hope the offending passage has been corrected. Then it would be a solid four-star book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stuff my 3 year old knows is WRONG! 29 Aug. 2009
By confused - Published on
Format: Paperback
"BRONTOSAURUS"??!! That name has been known to be incorrect for 100 years. And those dinosaurs couldn't hide in water and a meteor strike is what led to extinction. I can't believe how full of wrong info this 2007 book is. I could understand if it were a "storybook" but it's supposed to be non-fiction.

1.0 out of 5 stars Scientifically Inaccurate! 15 May 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Please don't buy this books for your kids, it needs to be updated! Much of the information about the dinosaurs in this book is incorrect.
3.0 out of 5 stars If I didn't know what the original was like, I might like this one better 25 Oct. 2015
By Rita Al-Abdullah - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
To be fair to this book, I bought this one as a replacement for a book of the same title that my mother had bought for my children. While this book has been updated to reflect the latest research on dinosaurs, the text is not nearly as entertaining as the original one. If I didn't know what the original was like, I might like this one better. In my view the authors should return to the text of the original and just replace outdated information on dinosaur names and/or attributes.
5.0 out of 5 stars perfect choice for elementary school reading 6 Oct. 2014
By Bill Grant - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love these series. But most important that my son does. I order 20+ books and he loves to read them (usually it is not that easy to make him read). I got mix of 2-3-4 levels for the second grader, second level is too easy, but it creates some fun and he reads them with pleasure. Love it, I would recommend it.
