Book Review: BBC Earth – Walking with Dinosaurs: The 3D Movie.


Walking with Dinosaurs

Walking with Dinosaurs, a six-part documentary on the BBC, is now the most watched cable documentary ever, as well as a long-running live stage show. The long-awaited 3D motion picture comes out this December, and is sure to thrill fans.

Walking with Dinosaurs Encyclopedia (Walking With Dinosaurs the 3d Movie)

About the Book: The Walking with Dinosaurs Encyclopedia is filled with facts about the dinosaurs from the movie as well as facts about the world the dinosaurs inhabited and theories about their rise and fall. With full-color images from the film and photos of paleontologists at work, this encyclopedia is a must-have item for Walking with Dinosaurs fans.

Have you ever wondered how dinosaurs came to rule the Earth? Or what other species coexisted with them? Or how these enormous reptiles grew and evolved?

My Review: The Encyclopedia consists of the history of the earth and the geological time scale, the rise of the Dinosaurs, how do scientists study Dinosaurs? the Dinosaur family tree, Drifting continents, warm blooded Dinosaurs and many more.

Children will have fun finding out how the earth is much older than the dinosaurs and how the scientists use a standard time scale to describe the history of the earth which they divided into a series of eons, and again into smaller eras and finally turned into smaller periods and how they were able to study rocks using a technique called radiometric dating.

About the Book: Walk with the dinosaurs in this 8×8 storybook with stickers, based on the motion picture. It’s time for the Pachyrhino herd to move from their summer home to the Winter Ground.

My Review: As summer began to fade, the Pachyhinosaurus must begin their journey south before the weather turns cold. As the thunderstorm gathered overhead lightning hit a tree and the dinosaurs panicked and fled. The three young Pachyrhinosaurus, Patchi, Scowler, and Juniper got separated from the rest of the herd. Will these three friends survive the journey and find their way home or be lost to their families forever?
