    1. "Everything was new to the baby Crytoclidus. The sea was full of sights and smells and tastes." We follow a baby plesiosaur and her pod as they explore their prehistoric environment. There is danger that lurks in her ocean. What will happen when the baby plesiosaur wanders too far from her pod? This children's dinosaur book is written with as much scientific accuracy as possible and is still child friendly. Using scientific names and blending facts we know about these creatures including what th [...]


    2. A young Cryptoclidus and her mother swim through the seas looking for food and keeping an eye out for other predators. When the baby wanders off too far from her pod, she is attacked by a Liopleurodon who is much larger than she is. As fast as she can move, she tries to stay out of his reach, but only the intervention of her mother and others of her species distract him enough to buy her time to escape. The text and computer-generated illustrations draw readers into this story of dinosaur peril [...]

The artwork is wonderful as well; its blend of photographs and illustrations brings the ancient cre [...]

Not only did we get to learn about dinosaurs but also about how some of them lived. I loved how the story was about a mother protecting her baby dinosaur too, [...]


    5. Really wonderful semi-non-fiction children's book about plesiosaurs and liopleurodons. AMAZING life like illustrations turn this book from interesting to outstanding. Great information about prehistoric ocean life and these two dinosaurs is interspersed with a story about a baby plesiosaur that wanders away from its mother. Minor tension might upset very little ones, but this should be a big hit for the dinosaur lover in your house. Best for Pre-K - 3rd grade. Reviewed Netgalley ARC.


    6. What a great little book! And how can kids NOT love a story about a young dinosaur that is suspenseful, as well as, riddled with facts? They'll spend just as much time (if not more) perusing the awesome illustrations. I, myself, went back through several times just to look at them again. Now I'll have to find the other books in this series.
