Grade 2-4-This easy-to-read series entry will be welcomed with deserved delight by young dinophiles. It is primarily a study of Maiasaura or "good mother lizards," whose parenting capabilities have been well documented by field discoveries and museum research under the auspices of Dr. John "Jack" Horner. Soft illustrations in tones of salmon, blues, and lavenders provide vivid visualizations of long-ago landscapes and keep pace with the text as it explains what scientists know about these creatures' nesting and parenting behaviors (with a side look at Oviraptor and a mention of Troodon). Both text and illustrations have been "vetted" by Dr. Horner for accuracy and adherence to his interpretations. The book concludes with instructions for creating a "fossil" egg or bone from eggshells and plaster of Paris. Unfortunately, proper disposal instructions are not provided for any unused portions of the mixture. This title is easier for the read-alone set than Dr. Horner's own Maia: A Dinosaur Grows Up (Museum of the Rockies, 1998), far less demanding than Mark A. Norell and Lowell Dingus's A Nest of Dinosaurs: The Story of Oviraptor (Doubleday, 1999), and a most welcome addition to the ever-popular 567.9s.
