Pursuing the Bird-Mimic Dinosaur Book Review

Pursuing the Bird-Mimic Dinosaur Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Learning about dinosaurs can be confusing but this dino book is easy to understand. Ornithomimus - The Bird-Mimic Dinosaur by Monique Keiran is an intro into the life & death of a dino-bird & more.

Author: Monique Keiran

Of all the butt ugly, jaw dropping dinosaurs that ever set foot on Earth's soil, Ornithomimus is the freakiest. Just picture a big, ugly, scaly bird about the size of your mom or dad. Too close too home? Sorry!


But ORNITHOMIMUS Pursuing the Bird-Mimic Dinosaur is a great intro into the life and death of this dino-bird. It's like three books in one and all three are Ice Age-like in their coolness.


There's the Dino 101 bit that explains the 5 W's of finding fossils. It spells out in real people talk what it takes to win the fossilization lottery. The Bird - Mimic Chronicles is kind of like reading your sister's diary if she lived 65 million years ago, had a beak and no teeth. And finally the events surrounding the actual discovery of Orni in Dinosaur Provincial Park, Alberta, Canada. C'mon, with a name like Dinosaur Park what do they expect to find there, Pokemon? But that aside, the author, Monique Keiran manages to pull all three together to make one good read for the palaeo-novice.

    The death penalty is effective and yes, that means there is a chance for less repeating. But, of course there will always be crime somewhere for something. I do not think they should be handed upon just any offender. The death penalty should be kept to criminals of the murder as well as attempted, assault, child predators (ect) area. I have seen cases of innocent men or women getting sent to death. So, as long as no one is getting the death penalty for anything slightly more minor or when they are not even guilty, then the death penalty is effective.

    I do not think that all bathrooms should become gender neutral. But, I do think that there should be more leverage when it comes to which bathroom a person goes into depending on gender. I do like the idea of a family bathroom, especially in the light of single men or women with children.
