Synopsis:

Blast back in time when Earth was ruled by lumbering Triceratops and spiny Stegosauruses — the prehistoric world will be a vacation destination to remember! My Tourist Guide to the Prehistoric World is the perfect way for armchair archeologists to learn about the land before time. Forget wading through heavy tomes and encyclopedias: here young readers will discover the secrets of dinosaurs, long-extinct plant-life, and other amazing aspects of the prehistoric world without feeling like it's hard work. The specially-commissioned images and photographs reveal amazing aspects of the prehistoric world, and, combined with a quirky guidebook detailing "Things to see" and "What to pack," they create an out-of-this-century experience for all. Includes collectable keychain!

From School Library Journal: Gr 3-5-Readers are invited to hop aboard a live-in time machine to take a tour from the Precambrian Earth of 4.6 billion years ago to the rise of the Neanderthals. Stromatolites to trilobites, Nothasaurus to Elasmosaurus, megalodon to Smilodon-the journey unfolds with photographically realistic illustrations as readers enjoy the side excursions skiing on a "snowball Earth," jet skiing on a Cretaceous ocean, and zip-lining amid a herd of Barosaurs. Various sidebars provide data on size, diet, habits, habitats, and dates, with a few tourist tips thrown in for good measure (run from a Postosuchus, for example). Brief paragraphs of text are provided, as is a non-dated time line ("Age of Fish," "Age of Insects," etc.).The section on the "Age of Humans" is extremely weak. Particularly annoying is a size-comparison outline of a "Human" and a "Neanderthal" (Homo sapiens, anyone?) Browsable but not memorable.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NYα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
