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.

    Although I think a tree stump has more brains than the two of them combined, I would rather have Trump in office. I really dislike the guy, but his ideas are more my taste than Clinton's. He also seems sturdier than she is, mentally I mean (and physically too ofc but that doesn't matter).  I also gained more respect for Donald Trump over the past week or two.  I don't know how many of you are aware, but Louisiana was recently affected by a very bad flood. As natural disasters do, it destroyed housings and people's personal belongings and took lives. The damage to them was nowhere near as bad as that, but some of my family was affected by this flood, which I guess could give me a bit of a bias.    Donald Trump personally went down to Baton Rouge and handed out toys for children, food, and clothes, among other things. He also made a contribution fund to the state's flood relief charity. What did Hillary Clinton do? Go on Jimmy Kimmel and make fun of Trump quotes. Even if it was only to give himself a better name, the fact that he was so generous enough to provide for these poor people when Clinton, and even Obama, did not would definitely earn my vote if I were legal enough to participate in elections (which I hate to say because I don't care for both Trump and politics in general).       Though, I'd rather my cat be president.
