Editor reviews

In a pleasing Australian accent backed by synthesized strings meant to evoke wonder, performer Todd MacDonald gives the listener a very brief introduction to the "terrible lizards" - dinosaurs! - who mysteriously died out 65 million years ago. Inhabitants of the Mesozoic Era, dinosaurs are still not fully understood. This audiobook, produced by iMinds, is intended to tempt the young mind to dig deeper into a subject that catches his or her interest. While most students will have been introduced to dinosaurs in grade school, a quick, well-produced recap will certainly enliven a short car ride to or from school.

Summary

Learn about the science and history of Dinosaurs with iMindsJNR audio learning series for younger minds. Huge and sometimes ferocious, dinosaurs ruled the earth for more than 175 million years. To us, dinosaurs might be scary-looking. But humans never had to fear dinosaurs because they died out 65 million years ago, a long time before the first people were around!Dinosaurs lived in a period called the Mesozoic era, which began about 240 million years ago. This era can be divided into three periods. The first is the Triassic period, when Dinosaurs first emerged. At that time, they were smaller and made up only about 5 per cent of the land animals that were around.

"I'm learning all sorts of stuff about stuff I didn't even know I didn't know. And it sticks. In a nutshell: wonderful." (Jonathon Margolis, Financial Times)

Waste of Credits

Way too short and very boring. If you’re going to talk about dinosaurs, you need to be more in depth.

intro level goodies

A great, brief, overview of the eras, and classifications, of dinosaurs. This short topic overview can help anyone interested in dinosaurs gain a starting vocabulary to google and begin their research into this expansive topic.

The name dinosaur comes from the Greek words deinos (“terrible” or “fearfully great”) and sauros (“reptile” or “lizard”). The English anatomist Richard Owen proposed the formal term Dinosauria in 1842 to include three giant extinct animals (Megalosau
