Dino Treasures - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Just as some people dig and look for pirate treasure, some scientists dig and look for treasures, too. These treasures may not be gold or jewels but fossils. Following in the footsteps of Dino Tracks, this sequel takes young readers into the field with paleontologists as they uncover treasured clues left by dinosaurs. Readers will follow what and how scientists have learned about dinosaurs: what they ate; how they raised their young; how they slept, fought, or even if they ever got sick. True to fashion, the tale is told through a rhythmic, fun read-aloud that can even be sung to the tune of Itsy Bitsy Spider.
My Review:
 
Youngsters interested in dinosaurs will relish in the illustrations and stories of creatures past in the book Dino Treasures.  The words are in cadence, making the story even more fun.  Fossils, dung, and tracks have helped scientists become versed on how dinosaurs lived, ate, fought, and more.  This book shows how scientists have discovered the ways of the now extinct animals and what they've learned from them.  The "For Creative Minds" section in the back of the book explains the difference between a biologist and a paleontologist.  There's also an extensive section on how fossils have given clues of physical proof of dinosaurs' existence.
 
Dino Treasures is a 2015 release by Arbordale Publishing.
