Customer Reviews of The Day the Dinosaurs Died

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dramatic and speculative, but engrossing for kids In countless dinosaur books my daughter and I have read about the demise of the dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous. This is the first book that we have found for children that explores what it might have been like to experience the extinction event at the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary. Without going into too much scientific detail about how we know what we know about the probable catastrophic impact event, we are shown the effects of a massive meteor strike on the Earth. Sensitive children may be upset by the images of dinosaurs burning and suffering, but more curious children will gain valuable insight into the cycle of life, both of individual creatures, and of life on earth. Now if someone would just write a book about the massive and devastating Permian extinction which makes the Cretaceous extinction look like an unpleasant afternoon.

Editorial Reviews

“With its impressive, fairly naturalistic illustrations, [this book] answers the question of how the dinosaurs became extinct.”
