Excellent book, especially if you have kids!

A wonderful project, and a clear and well-written book. Do not expect to finish quickly -- we spent many hours over many months cleaning, sorting, cutting, and assembling a beautiful 'apatosaurus.' Kids of all ages (mine are 3 and 5) can get involved, from enthusiastically finishing their chicken dinners to cleaning and sorting and assembling the new family pet.I should note that if you have a Dremel or similar moto-tool, you'll find a lot of the cutting and sanding easier (and you'll have less bone-boiling).

One of the best educational tools I've ever seen:

I am a 21 year old biology major and this is one of the best science books I've ever purchased. I have always loved books that involved cut-and-paste but this one is the best. You end up with an actual model of a dinosaur as well as extensive knowledge of skeletal anatomy, dinosaur and bird facts, and how to roast a chicken!
