From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-- An aptly named and engaging volume that takes readers on a lively tour of the dinosaurs' world. Senses are heightened as the smells and sounds of these exotic terrains are described. The journey begins in the abundant sea where children encounter six-foot-long Hesperornis, birds that cannot walk or fly. Through swamp, forest, and upland, the mighty and the minuscule are brought to life. Lauber describes the tiny, furry animals skittering across the forest floor and points out which trees and shrubs are cousins of plants on Earth today. Many of Henderson's paintings are handsome portraits that eloquently depict the easy grace of Pteranodons and the lush, shaded forest with its carpet of leaf litter. The touches of pastel and gouache add depth and drama to the prehistoric land, sky, and seascapes. The journey ends in the western United States where the first peaks of the Rocky Mountains are starting to thrust up. Lauber then returns to the present day and describes how scientists dig up the past. All of the illustrations are captioned. A logical page layout with double-spaced text and plenty of white background makes the book inviting and unimposing. This enjoyable offering gives a wealth of information and is indexed with a pronunciation key. Most libraries will want to own it as well as Lauber's The News about Dinosaurs (1989) and Dinosaurs Walked Here and Other Stories Fossils Tell (1987, both Bradbury). --Denia Lewis Hester, Dewey School, Evanston, IL

From Publishers Weekly:

This fitting companion to these collaborators' The News About Dinosaurs vividly recreates life 75 million years ago on a site near the present state of Montana. With almost novelistic narrative skill and a You Are Ther e immediacy, Lauber explores the habitats and habits of a variety of prehistoric life forms. In three chapters, she focuses on environment and ecosystems in and around the sea, the swamps and lowland areas and the more heavily forested uplands. The detailed text is paired with striking mixed-media illustrations; some have been created by Henderson for this book, others are reproductions of works in the Museum of the Rockies. An afterword, "How We Know What We Know," offers intriguing insights into the origins of fossilized remains and methods of current scientific investigations. Numerous colorful maps and a useful index with pronunciations round out this informative and entertaining work. Ages 6-10.
