Review:
The website links lead eager learners to more information, pictures, photographs and videoclips. Readers are able to see a dig, read about the locations of dinosaurs in Europe and download a drawing of a dinosaur that catches an interest.

Although a computer is not required to make solid use of the book's listings of all 900 dinosaurs and basic facts about each, taking advantage of the information and activities available online tremendously expands the effectiveness.
