    My five year old insists on giving a review (she's dictating ;-): "This book is awesome for us! I LOVE dinosaurs. My favorite dinosaur is Tyrannosaurus Rex. There are so many different kinds of dinosaurs. Tsintaosaurus is my other favorite. On its' head it has a horn like a unicorn horn."

    Read this book to Alex for about a month here and there. It is a good book, but, just like for all the books in this series, colors would have helped in the illustrations. Still informative for my 5 year-old.

They want to know when the dinosaurs lived, what other animals lived during this time, and how do we know about dinosaurs. This book follows Jack and Annie as they track facts about dinosaurs through information, illustrations, and pictures regarding their hunt for answers. Analysis: This is a perfect pair to the first fiction book on dinosaurs in this series. I loved how Osborne allows children to feel like they are hunting for clues alongside Jack and Annie. The Magic Tree House fact Trackers are a great way for kids to become more familiar with the topic that was in the fiction book. How I would use this book: I would definitely recommend this book to teachers to have in their classroom, because they offer an entertaining alternative to finding facts. Kids will want these in the classroom after they read the fiction counterpart they along with Jack and Annie might have some of the same questions.

    I read this with my kiddo because he likes the Magic Treehouse series. I have to say though that there were a number of things that were either poorly expressed ideas or wrong. I have a background in biology, and there were some thing that were just basic bio 101 that I had to correct on the fly while I was reading aloud. That said, it was the first of the companion fact-tracker series, so maybe they got a better technical editor along the way. I'll probably try reading another with my kiddo, bec I read this with my kiddo because he likes the Magic Treehouse series.

I did appreciate that they aimed the information at a young crowd and made big concepts approachable.

    I think that this book gives many information about dinosaurs. It talks about some different periods such as Jurassic and Triassic periods. The book also introduces different kinds of dinosaurs and their special features. I also understand that people can search for fossils or footprints to find more about the dinosaurs. It also explains the two guess from people of the extinction of dinosaurs. The first reason is due to the climate change and the second one is because of the asteroid theory.

    So, after my kids read the first book of the Magic Treehouse series ("Dinosaurs Before Dark") for themselves, I read to them from this "fact tracker" companion - a purely "educational" book putatively narrated by Jack and Annie. This clarified the known facts and science about dinosaurs, as encountered by Jack and Annie, and encourages the children reading the book to research the topic for themselves. I like this. It is a bit heavy, though, compared to the light reading of the Magic Treehouse b So, after my kids read the first book of the Magic Treehouse series ("Dinosaurs Before Dark") for themselves, I read to them from this "fact tracker" companion - a purely "educational" book putatively narrated by Jack and Annie.

It is a bit heavy, though, compared to the light reading of the Magic Treehouse book - it probably needs to be split up over several reading sessions, or their eyes will glaze over after a while!

    Dinosaurs (Magic Tree House Research Guide, #1) by Will Osborne is a fun way to teach students about the dinosaur era. This book has several pictures and facts about the accurate dinosaur era. Students will enjoy Jack's and Annie's adventure as they learn new information on a topic they were interested in. The book is great for storytime or for students who can read independently. Sentences are more complex but easy to read. Dinosaurs (Magic Tree House Research Guide, #1) by Will Osborne is a fun way to teach students about the dinosaur era.

    The magic of nonfiction! Started reading this to Sam after two of the regular Magic Treehouse books and thought there was no way we’d finish it... but he was THERE for every chapter. If we actually read all the accompanying fact trackers and make our way through the whole series, the kid will essentially have finished his liberal arts education.

    Lots of good info about dinosaurs for kids! It goes along with Dinosaurs Before Dark, which is Book #1 in The Magic Treehouse series. I think this is a great educational series for young readers and love that there are nonfictional books to go with the fiction stories! Will continue to read through this series as I never read it as a child.

    Can't speak on the accuracy of the facts presented, since I am no expert on dinosaurs, but I really liked the way information was organized. It was interesting and easy to follow. Thumbs up for the real photographs and cute illustrations, but I agree with other reviewers—it would be nice if these pages were in color! (Of course, printing that would be MUCH more expensive so I get why it's not.)

    I really like this book. I like that it takes a subject that kids read about in the Magic Treehouse book and expand on it. I learned a lot and found it very engaging and informative.

    When Jack and Annie traveled back in time in the first Magic Tree House book, Dinosaurs Before Dark, they were inspired to learn as much as they could about dinosaurs. Here they share their favorite facts with you and offer ideas of where you can learn more on your own! Did you know that the Stegasaurus's brain was the shape of a hot dog? Or that even famous dinosaur hunters sometimes make mistakes? Did you know there may have been a bigger, fiercer meat-eater than the T. rex? Read about these c When Jack and Annie traveled back in time in the first Magic Tree House book, Dinosaurs Before Dark, they were inspired to learn as much as they could about dinosaurs.

Or that even famous dinosaur hunters sometimes make mistakes? Did you know there may have been a bigger, fiercer meat-eater than the T. rex? Read about these cool facts and more, and check out the other Magic Tree House Research Guides that cover a variety of topics! This was an easy, enjoyable read, and I did learn quite a bit from it. I think this is a great way to get kids reading more nonfiction. I also like that it encourages the habit of learning more about the subject of a fiction book after you read it. I would recommend this book for grades 2-5, especially Magic Tree House fans or dinosaur enthusiasts. Readalikes, other than the other Magic Tree House Research Guides, might include How to Be a Dinosaur Hunter: Your Globe-Trotting, Time-Travelling Guide by Scott Forbes and Barnum's Bones: How Barnum Brown Discovered the Most Famous Dinosaur in the World by Tracey E. Fern.

    Our girls adore the Magic Tree House books and the Research Guides that accompany them are great too. I find that they are short enough and include enough pictures to keep our girls' attention. And they provide just the right amount of information, so they are learning too. We have read most of the books in this series and will continue reading them until we reach the end of the series or the Osbornes stop writing them. This book has a lot of information about the time of the dinosaurs. The diff Our girls adore the Magic Tree House books and the Research Guides that accompany them are great too.

    I enjoyed this non-fiction piece to the 1st Magic Treehouse book, Dinosaurs Before Dark, better than the book! It was a longer read, with a lot of information about dinosaurs. Even though I read it for a class, it was written in an interesting way. I didn't know about the Bone Wars in the late 1800's, when scientists were seeing who could gather the most fossils. Lots of information at the back of the book - more books to read, internet sites, museums, CD ROMS, and videos about dinosaurs.

    This book is the real historical fact book that goes along with Dinosaurs Before Dark. It is a book full of facts about dinosaurs that is intended to be read with the fictional story. Again, this book has tons of true facts and after reading a fiction book, it would be cool for the students to be able to learn some facts. I like this book because it is an easy read, and it is more fun than just reading facts from a textbook or listening to a lecture.
