* Reviews *Book Review: Allosaurus and Other Dinosaurs and Reptiles from the Upper JurassicI would use this book as a reference source for my advanced 6th grade students who are researching various dinosaurs and reptiles before reading our novel Jurassic Park. This would provide the students with background information on the dinosaurs size (height & weight), physical strengths and weaknesses, diet, etc. The font is large and the key words are bolded. The computer generated graphics are eye-catching as well.Kathleen M. Rizzo, Highlands Middle School
