Ama's Picture Books

My grandmother recently left me her entire collection of picture books and children's literature. The entire collection is comprised of over 300 books. I am attempting to read as many as possible in 2014.

Beasts of the Tar Pit

Beasts of the Tar Pits: Tales of Ancient America - Written by W. W. Robinson

by WW Robinson and Irene B Robinson


This book was my uncle Bruce's. I'm pretty sure it's also one of the last books I shelved (besides the Christmas books which is why it's out of order). It was an interesting read. The book itself is pretty old (older than Page Museum), and there were a lot of times I was left wondering how scientists decided what an animal ate or how it ended up in the tar pits. So it was slightly unsatisfying on that front, but overall not a bad book. It would be interesting to read a newer book about the tar pits to see if anything has changed.
