Cohen, Daniel. Triceratops and Other Cretaceous Plant-Eaters: Dinosaurs of North America (published in 1996 by Capstone Press). Both of our boys enjoyed reading and studying about dinosaurs when they were in the early grades. This book in the “Dinosaurs of North America” series describes what is known about three different types of plant-eating dinosaurs that lived in the United States and Canada during what is claimed to have been 140 to 65 million years ago. Readers will discover what each dinosaur is thought to have looked like and how each one protected itself.
We checked this book out of the library for our older son Mark to read when he was about seven years old. Obviously, Bible believers will need to be aware of the evolutionary bias of such books. Daniel Cohen has written many other books about dinosaurs, including three more in the “Dinosaurs of North America” series, which are Tyrannosaurus Rex and Other Cretaceous Meat-Eaters, Stegosaurus and Other Jurassic Plant-Eaters, and Allosaurus and Other Jurassic Meat-Eaters. The four books about Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaurus, and Allosaurus were also offered as a set.
