Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but a few technical gaffs Normally the Step Into Reading books are impeccable. My daughter and I have read many of the science and nature related books from this series from all 5 levels and thoroughly enjoyed them. This one is interesting in that it explores dinosaur babies--what they were like, what they ate, how they hatched, and how we have found them as fossils. Where this book fails a bit is in the details: One picture shows a mother Maiasaura bringing leaves for hatchlings to eat. In all probability, Maiasaura hatchlings would not have been able to eat or digest leaves. Maiasauras probably fed their young prechewed or predigested plant matter. There is good evidence that some species of Tyrannosaur were feathered, but the babies shown here are not. Deinonychus was definitely feathered, but is shown here as a green scaly lizard. Pteranodons are shown flying in a scene with a Tyrannosaur, but these two creatures did not exist at the same time. The last Pteranodon died out 2 Million years before the first Tyrannosaur evolved. Triceratops are shown living in badlands; however, they actually . lived in open wood-land with flowering plants and conifers. The animals would surely have starved to death in the terrain in which this book depicts them living. If you read this book with your child, you can take the opportunity to discuss how sometimes authors and illustrators make mistakes. Below are some Step Into Reading books that we really enjoy and that are not plagued by errors of fact...
