My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

What a great book! There are a LOT of interesting facts about dinosaurs. For example, the word dinosaur means terrible reptiles, but terrible in a good way such as amazing or formidable. Dinosaur fossils have been found on all of the continents and several dozen new species are found every year.

Facts Book for Kids about Dinosaurs is a children’s book that adults will find interesting too. It gives up-to-date information about what is known as of now, but a lot of these facts could change. For example, the smallest dinosaur and the biggest dinosaur could change with the next fossil discovery.

I have a great-nephew who is really into dinosaurs, and he’ll love this book. I know what I’m getting him for his next birthday!

About the Author


I’m Rob and I love writing books for kids. I absolutely adore and am inspired by books and children and education and so have spent some 15 years writing and editing and brainstorming books for readers ages 4 and up. I have four children and they are my first readers.

When I’m not writing new books for kids, you can find me outside, gardening, biking or camping with my family and friends. Because I enjoy traveling, and spending time outdoors.

Review: Dinomummy by Dr. Phillip Lars Manning


31-zEtGLUdL._Title: Dinomummy

 Author:  Dr. Phillip Lars Manning

 Genre:  Science

 Publisher:  Kingfisher

 Publication Date:  2007, First Edition

Description: Imagine finding the body of a dinosaur so well preserved that you can run your hands over its bumpy, scaly skin. Dinohunter Tyler Lyson unearthed such a creature–a dinomummy–and he named it Dakota. Dinomummy is the story of hadrosaur Dakota’s perilous life in Hell Creek, on the floodplains of prehistoric North America. It is also the story of Tyler and Dr. Phillip Lars Manning and their quest to unlock the secrets of one of the best-preserved dinosaurs ever found. What did Dakota Look like? Why did it die? How did its body survive for millions of years? The incredible answers build a uniquely intimate picture of one very special dinosaur’s life and death.


What an interesting book! Tyler Lyson was only 16 years old when he found Dakota, the dinomummy. I like how Dr. Manning pulls everything together. He starts out with the story of Dakota and how the life of a dinosaur could have been in the area of South Dakota millions of years ago and then goes on to explain how Tyler found Dakota and what happened after the finding. He also includes a lot of  interesting facts about dinosaurs. It is written for ages 9-11 but I found it interesting and informative. Did you know that a dinomummy isn’t just a fossilized skeleton but also has some fossilized soft tissue like skin or organs? I didn’t! How cool is that?

I’m out of these in my store but it’s still available on Amazon.
