Through more than 75 meticulously hand-drawn illustrations, plus ten gorgeous gatefolds, experts from the world-famous American Museum of Natural History recreate the world of the dinosaurs as it was over 250 million years ago. Each gatefold presents a dinosaur-related subject, from the characteristics of the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous time periods to dinosaur classification using a cladogram. In addition, readers will accompany a paleontologist on an excavation and learn how they plan a dig!

Gr 4-6–The illustrations in these cool series titles are enhanced by 10 large gatefolds that allow kids to dig deeper into the topics and enjoy amazing illustrations. Each title clearly defines fact and theory, leaving puzzles for the next generation of scientists to solve. Dinosaurs is sure to fascinate future paleontologists as well as children who just like dinosaurs with plenty of riveting details and awesome art by the anatomical illustrator of the American Museum of Natural History. Human Body touches on each of the body systems and provides a highly detailed look at a human cell. This would not be the book to pick up to learn more about reproduction. While the reproductive organs are clearly identified and an illustration of a baby growing in the womb is included, there is no discussion of how the sperm and egg meet. The simplistic illustrations and lack of punch make this title less successful than the others. Hurricanes has eye-catching photographs, clear information, and heart-stopping first-person narratives. Tornadoes provides an exceptional description of the conditions required to form a tornado and includes a foldout of a spectacular photo gallery. With the one exception noted above, these books are entertaining enough to draw in reluctant readers and packed with enough information to attract kids who are familiar with the topics.–Heather Acerro, Allen County Public Library, Fort Wayne, IN.
