    This book is great. It has great illustrations and the colors in the book work really good together that make the eye look at the whole page. It is also a great book for learning. It tells about the dinosaurs, explains how long ago they lived, as well as tells how butterflies roamed with them as well. I think that it is a fun book and children would be really interested in it.

    Last time I checked, kids like dinosaurs. Landing on Kirkus' best of the year list, Barner's latest dino book adds femininity to the subject with the parallel history of the dainty butterfly --- who actually survived extinction, fluttering along for 65 million years. (Add this cut paper collage-style nonfiction title to the picture books collection to increase circ.)

    A whole lot of assumptions trying to sway children to faux science.
