"Dinosaur Discovery" (Black Rabbit/Bolt) brings the prehistoric era to life with engaging graphics and text features."

School Library Journal, November 2021

"This series provides a comprehensive exploration of different types of dinosaurs and how they lived. Each title takes a dinosaur and describes its physical features, behaviors, and diet. Quality text features, including diagrams of the dinosaurs' size and body parts, maps of where their bones were discovered, and time lines showing when they lived elevates the content and brings it to life. Page layouts include one-to-two short paragraphs, and high-interest images provide a detailed reference of what the dinosaur looked like. A fascinating "New Discoveries" section highlights how our understanding of dinosaurs continues to evolve. The books are written between a second and third grade reading level, and while they are slightly longer than most hi-lo nonfiction for this audience, they are jam-packed with engaging information. VERDICT With detailed content and informative text features, this dinosaur series is an excellent resource for striving readers."

Pterodactyl, Booklist , October 2021

"Though appearing fierce on the book's cover, this ancient flying reptile comes off as quite cute in the digital illustrations as it dives for fish and soars through Jurassic skies. Four brief, highly readable chapters introduce this dinosaur contemporary, describe the time period in which it lived, its diet, and scientific discoveries that shape what we know about it. Almost every double-page spread contains a dynamic, page-filling illustration, sometimes overlaid with an infographic relating interesting facts, such as its wingspan (about three feet). Larger, two-page infographics also depict the Pterodactyl physical features and size in relation to other pterosaurs. Comparisons to modern animals (e.g., bats and pelicans) will also help readers visualize this prehistoric creature. Standard nonfiction features frame this enticing entry in the attractive Dinosaur Discovery series."
