2008 Award
Ask Dr. K. Fisher About DInosaurs
(by Claire Llewellyn/ illus. by Kate Sheppard, Kingfisher $10.95 Score:) A factual dinosaur book with a sense of humor. Letters written by various dinosaurs ask for info on why one is gaining so much weight; having trouble getting new teeth, etc. The questions are just this side of silly while the answers a good natured but totally factual. 7 & up.

Age: Early School Years. Award Year: 2008.

2003 Award
Dinosaurs Big and Small
(by Kathleen Weidner Zoehfeld/illus. by Lucia Washb, HarperCollins $15.95 Score:) A smart new addition to the excellent Let's Read and Find Out series. Comparing the size of dinosaurs to things that children know in the real world adds to the wonder of their size and variety. Told in child-friendly language, this is a book that will not overwhelm a young listener or reader. 4Ė7.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2003.

2006 Award
Prehistoric Actual Size
(by Steve Jenkins, Houghton Mifflin $16 Score:) It isnít about the facts, though this is a picture book crammed full of facts and tidbits of information. In this case, itís far more about the wonder of these amazing specimens, shown in their actual size. Though they canít fit in their entirety, Jenkins show you enough of a detail to deliver the big ideas. Imagine a dragonfly with wings more than two feet across, or a terror bird large enough to eat a horse! Of course, we do not know how large or small horses were in those days. Also top rated, I See a Kookaburra! Introducing animals from differing habitats. 6 & up.

Age: Early School Years,Later School Years. Award Year: 2006.

2006 Award
Boy, Were We Wrong About Dinosaurs!
(by Kathleen V. Kudlinski/illus. by S.D. Schindler, Dutton $15.99 Score:) A refreshing look at dinosaurs, contrasting what we used to think we knew, with what we think we know now. As interesting as the information is in this book, itís the bigger idea that wins the day by helping young people see that our body of knowledge is not fixed and closed, but rather is ever-growing and often changing. 7 & up.

Age: Early School Years,Later School Years. Award Year: 2006.
