This colorful, casebound book fascinated everyone in our household from three years old to fifty-five. Hidden in envelopes, behind doors, and in crannies within the book are some of the widespread legends of dragons from ancient Babylon to ancient South America. Quotations from eyewitnesses as varied as Cicero, Marco Polo, and The Tombstone Epitaph newspaper describe flying monsters that sound and look like dinosaurs that allegedly died out millions of years ago. Written from a creationist perspective, the book explains the evolutionary bias that prevents people from recognizing the obvious: dragons were dinosaurs.
Starting with Deuteronomy 32:33, Bill Looney records verses that refer to dragons. He deals with the passages comparing Satan to a dragon. He lists several legends, such as the legend of England's patron saint, Saint George, which tie dragons to particular saints who allegedly tamed or defeated them.
This fascinating, colorful book will be a great addition to your family's library. It will provide hours of learning and fun while strengthening your child's understanding of Gods creation and increasing his ability to withstand the false teachings of evolution. Debbie W.

Momto4AlabamaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent!!June 28, 2016Momto4AlabamaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This book was much nicer than I expected. After reading the reviews, I expected something similar to a kids pop-up book. My boys were enthralled! It was far nicer than just a pop-up book and will definitely be something that we will keep and read for years to come.

Little ones should be supervised while reading it so nothing gets lost or damaged. This book is a fun resource and my kids loved pulling out the different packets of information. Beautiful pictures and high quality.

MJ5 Stars Out Of 5November 28, 2012MJQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My first glimpse of Dragons: Legends & Lore of Dinosaurs was from the Master Books catalog/website. Second was on recommendation of finding it in the Veritas Press catalog. Third was in conversation with my sister when she said that this would be an excellent book for her oldest son. I just knew even before I got my hands on it that this was going to be something full of fascination. I am not disappointed and not surprised to find something so great from Master Books and New Leaf Publishing Group.
This is a special book and not one to leave out with the little ones. There are fragile bits with envelopes that open and present the letters they are hiding as well as lift-the-flap type doors and booklets. Your eyes will be treated to a feast with all the different shapes and textures on each page in addition to the fabulous illustrations of dragons, dinosaurs and similar lore. While this book is a juvenile non-fiction, I would aim at around six or older with a child that can know how important it is to be very careful with all the bits within to make it last for years to come. (My three year old can enjoy it, but I wouldn't leave her alone with it. She might get carried away and misplace a letter or internal document that is half the fun.)
Content ranges through out the book with many different topics. The size of the book makes looking maps or large pictures very attractive. From geography to archaeology the details are awesome. This book could be used to spark an interest or as a whole resource if you're not delving terribly deep into the history of dragons and dinosaurs. From full page double opening spreads to illustrations and artifact photography there is plenty to please your vision.
A dragon timeline provides very neat information that would make designing a spring board for jumping into fictional accounts easy. Learning about translations of accounts and even a page with dragon names in various languages is fun for the mind. I love now at my age, but I know my young-self would have loved this! Ending the book with a questions and answers page on dragons in the Bible is great and a wonderful way to leave it off.
I have yet to see anything that quite compares to this book. It is really incredible and you have to see it in person to really get the full effect.
*Thanks New Leaf Publishing for providing a copy for review.*
