9780064450782: Digging Up Dinosaurs (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 2)

How did those enormous dinosaur skeletons get inside the museum?

Long ago, dinosaurs ruled the Earth. Then, suddenly, they died out. For thousands of years, no one knew these giant creatures had ever existed. Then people began finding fossils—bones and teeth and footprints that had turned to stone. Today, teams of experts work together to dig dinosaur fossils out of the ground, bone by fragile bone. Then they put the skeletons together again inside museums, to look just like the dinosaurs of millions of years ago.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2The most notable change in this revision is the pictures: bright cray on-colored drawings have replaced the drab gray and green illustrations of the earlier edition. The hand-lettered cap tions and the dialogue in balloons have been slightly enlarged, making them easier to read. Textual changes are slight; Brontosaurus is now called Apa tosaurus, and some pages have been combined to streamline the book. Al though the 1981 edition already depict ed both men and women and people of diverse ethnic backgrounds, it's nice to be greeted by a smiling female paleon tologist on the cover of the new edition. There's not much new information here, but the packaging is certainly more timely and appealing.Cathryn A. Camper, Minneapolis Public Li brary
