From Trilobites to Dinosaurs to Mammoths in More Than 500 Million Years

Written by David Elliott, Illustrated by Matthew Trueman

This book is about different dinosaurs. The book has poems for every dinosaur. Some of the poems are funny. The book also has good pictures. (Paxton Petroni, 5th grader)

What first caught my eye about this book was the beautiful illustrations. When I read the book to a class at school, even those who are not interested in dinosaurs were captivated by the pictures. The poetry is simple, but descriptive of the creature it features. The time of the creature’s existence is posted at the bottom of the page. Elliott has chosen some unusual and interesting dinosaurs to highlight and readers will enjoy this book. (Teresa Edmunds, Media Clerk)
