[Editor's Note: This is a combined review of DINOSAURS! and SHARKS!]--These two books in the Know-It-All series appear to be created with young boys in mind. From their grandiose openings with their echoing greatest-show-on-earth voice to their dino-stomp or shark-bite page-turn signals, these productions are designed to entertain while educating listeners about dinosaurs and sharks. A computerized female voice reads facts from the sidebars and timelines while the narrator (who has a dubious British accent) reads the main features. Listeners won't know it all when they're through, but they will learn something from these books, which will hold the interest of younger readers.
