Grade 1-3–Beginning with a pronunciation guide for the names of various dinosaurs, this book describes what probably happened to those reptiles 65 million years ago, when a comet or an asteroid most likely slammed into the Earth in the area of the Yucatán Peninsula. Rather than delivering a strict factual narrative, Brown focuses on some individual creatures, bringing readers closer to the scene. She tells how the dinosaurs would have been feeding and then suddenly destroyed by heat, falling rock, or tidal waves during the day of impact. Those not immediately killed would have starved following the death of their prey or plant foods. The book ends with the rise of small mammals that had hidden underground, escaping the dinosaurs' fate. Second graders will be able to read this book independently, and with its expressive, fairly naturalistic illustrations, younger children will find that it answers the question of how the dinosaurs became extinct. An author's note provides additional material.–Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, Waterford, NJ
