    1. This book is any dinosaur lovers dream. This book is jam packed with information based on what the dinosaurs ate and what this means in the prehistoric era. It is such a fun exploration of the ways dinosaurs survived through food and how the food chain works. I thought is was a fun way to learn how the dinosaurs thrive and live through the food they eat and how this affected life in that era. Your body is only as good as the food that you put into it and that is the same for the dinosaurs of the [...]

    3. Kids love dinosaurs. They love books about dinosaurs, playing like they are dinosaurs, and playing with little plastic figures of the various "saurs."

    4. 4.5 starsEngaging. Great illustrations. Kids will enjoy reading about dinosaur diets. There are a few slightly gory images of dinosaurs eating dinosaurs.

    5. With lots of humor and information, Hannah Bonner explains who ate who in the time of the dinosaurs. The author appears as herself in character form to teach readers about what various dinosaurs ate. The book is set up with some cartoon elements - lots of speech bubbles and a few cartoon strips of information. Readers will definitely get a laugh out of the one in which Hannah and a scientist discuss how scientists used fossilized poop to learn what T. Rexs ate. Bonner goes group by group of dino [...]

    6. "Dining With Dinosaurs" give a lot of interesting, broad facts about plant-eating, insect-eating, meat-eating, and even trash-eating dinosaurs who lived millions of years ago. Instead of organizing this book according to the years in which scientists think the dinosaurs lived, "Dining with Dinosaurs" is sectioned off according to how these ancients ate. Food is the definite theme throughout this book and it's a fun way to learn about dinosaurs.Full review can be found here: agoodreid/2018/01

    7. This is THE book for children who love dinosaurs. Future Paleontologist in your house of any age? Get them this book. I learned so much and chuckled on every page. The writing is witty and written to engage kids and excite them about dinosaurs. There is so much to look at on each page. Besides the writing, there are fabulous illustrations of dinosaurs, insects, and plants with precise detail. The illustrations are really quite amazing.In fact, I learned so much I wouldn't even know where to begi [...]

    8. Are you curious about the food chain of dinosaurs? With this new guide from National Geographic Kids and written by Hannah Bonner all of your questions will be answered and your curiosity squashed.In the world of the mighty dino there are carnivores (meat eaters), insectivores (insect eaters), herbivores (plant eaters), piscivores (fish eaters) sunivores (sunlight, air, water and soil nutrient eaters), and finally trashivores who ate natures waste and recycled it. Readers will learn about all of [...]

    9. Not only does Dining with Dinosaurs present the different types of 'vores (carnivores, herbivores, etc.), but it also introduces a lot of different types of dinosaurs. While there are many familiar animals mentioned in this book, there are also plenty of new ones such as microraptor, Sinobaatar (mammal), Cretorabus (beetle), Carnotaurus, and Citipati. Each type of eater is given a two page spread that highlights features of those animals and what they ate. Each spread also includes a mini-comic [...]

    10. I know I've already talked about how much I love Hannah Bonner's books, but I'm at it again. It's paleontology and comics, how can you not love it?This time around Bonner focuses on dinosaur diets. We get great touches, like actual-size illustrations of teeth, interviews with paleontologists (even a coprolite expert!) and explorers. I love the potential for further investigation - you can research all of the different creatures she's illustrated, learn every name, or just focus on the "big pictu [...]

    11. This book was a great read! I thought it was going to be too dense and easy for kids to lose interest, but the text is succinct and informative, with tons of amazing pictures.Being an adult not engaged in paleontology, there are a lot of discoveries I missed that this book talks about - raptors were covered in feathers, new super predator dinosaurs, how important cheeks are. The art is one of the best parts! Accurate and informative while still being whimsical and fun. Everywhere you look there' [...]

    12. There are many ways in which this reminds me of the best of the MAGIC SCHOOLBUS series: Effective use of humor as a hook and to clarify/reinforce concepts, cartoon-strip inserts to extend or explain. The use of cientific diagrams and labels, text format clues, sidebars, insets, speech bubbles/graphic format, expert commentary, technical glossary inserts, charts, representational and cartoon illustrations are deftly balanced to sustain pacing and page turns.Back matter includes charts, author not [...]

    13. Full review with teaching tools: unleashingreaders/?p=1Although the cover looks a bit silly, this text is to be taken seriously. Hannah Bonner does a wonderful job examining what different dinosaurs ate, the science behind what and why they ate what they did, how paleontologists know what dinos ate, and where all these dinosaurs fit in the grand scheme of things. Told in a unique structure that alternates between Hannah and a microraptor narrating and comic strip interviews with scientists, the [...]

    14. Disappointed by the inconsistency in this book. Appreciated the candor when speculation was involved. Put off by made-up terms introduced in the same way as actual scientific terms. Contained many interesting details. Fun hidden pictures throughout. Excellent use of comic style side-bars when relating interview material. Good overall structure, but sometimes facts were organized confusingly.

    15. Wow! This is a fascinating look at what dinosaurs ate presented in a fun, engaging format. The ending is wonderful, connecting the dinosaur eaters to the animal eaters of today. Excellent back matter to direct the reader to more.
