breathtaking works of art

My kid loves this book, and I do, too! Absolutely gorgeous artwork makes this a real treat to read. It captures the drama and beauty of the prehistoric world, bringing the animals and environments to life in a way that has truly inspired my five-year-old, who says he'd like to become a paleontologist. Kudos to the artist and author for creating a work that will have a forever home on our bookshelf.
A Great Prehistory Book for People of All Ages.

This is a wonderful book. I oftentimes feel as though the age of prehistoric mammals, approximately 63 million years ago to about 10,000 years BC, is largely overlooked, and this tome does a satisfying job of chronicling and organizing the ascension and evolution of mammals. The artwork in this book is superb. Based upon the book's contents, I'm not quite sure why some people are calling this a children's book. Certainly, it's not as technical as a college textbook, but I doubt that was ever the author's intention. Unless you are a hardcore paleontologist or taking a college level course on the subject, this book provides more than enough information to educate and entice all people, both young and old. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to know a little bit more about the fantastic (and hairy) beasts that used to walk the Earth.

I did not find this to have the amazing pictures as written in some reviews. It is much like an encyclopedia and other books out there. Grandson(8) found it somewhat interesting but said , too, it is kind of like some of his other books. Glad I bought it used and not new. Very small print in it, too. I think it may be another two years before grandson will actually take time to read it.
The kind of book you want for your kids and for yourself.

This is a great book, very nicely illustrated, with very interesting facts about prehistoric mammals. I think illustrations, the fact box, the size chart and the descriptions are all well design and contribute to a satisfying and enticing reading experience kids and grown up will enjoy.
The recognisable familiar world in visual appearance of the astonishing prehistoric mammals

National geographic have once again brought out and presented us readers with prehistoric mammals a recognisable familar world with stunningly breathtaking photograph-like illustrations that are like transporting you back in time machine but without anyneed to go anywhere and with all sorts of structural, size charts detailed profiles on each individual species and whole stack more scientific information which is interesting to read because it,s fascinating for reference in discovery of new worlds.Finally i would like to add that the only putoff to this book is that the scientific names are incorrect or to more naturally put it wrong because of it,s classification data but it is still nonetheless worth buying whether you borrow it or keep it for reading four and half stars from me.
