A nice beginning to our second grade dinosaur unit. Softly colored, realistic illustrations with plenty to see. The kids noticed the world "Sue" on walls, boxes, and banners throughout the book, and were intrigued. There was some lively conversation about why the dinosaur was named "Sue," a question answered by the author's note at the end.

I have had a fascination with Sue since she hit the Field Museum. I loved this story to introduce young readers to her. I would have preferred that the mouse be left off and it just talk about the excavation of her. That in itself is a fascinating story. The "true" story is at the end of the book.

A little field mouse's house gets destroyed with paleontologists find a dinosaur in her canyon. She ends up getting packed away with the bones and taken to the Chicago Museum of Natural History. There she makes a new home for herself and eventually finds the bone that was her doorway, only this time, it's the foot of a giant T-Rex.

Illustrations are okay.

Four stars if you like dinosaurs (or mice). Nice story even if you don't.
