Proof Reading – Dinosaurs in 3-D

This morning we have to complete some proof reading for a publisher.  Everything Dinosaur team members are enthusiastic about such projects, after all, we don’t want children to be misinformed about dinosaurs and prehistoric animals. We have been sent copies of a new dinosaur book aimed at children and we have been asked to check this over and correct any errors before it goes to print.  It is so much better to have to do this before the print run, rather than have to inform the printing house and the publisher that the book they have just printed has some errors.

Good job we have been recruited to carry out this work, our diligent team have found more than ten major errors and it is not even noon yet.  Hopefully, we can get this work completed and our report sent out this afternoon, then we can get on with the fun things such as finishing painting the warehouse!

Spotting Dinosaur Mistakes

Unfortunately, we come across many instances of errors when it comes to the Dinosauria.  Whilst we fully accept since no one has ever seen a living non-avian dinosaur, interpreting the fossil record can lead to some very vivid and imaginative reconstructions, but sadly many books for children are littered with spelling mistakes and factual inaccuracies.

Triceratops Information – Far from Accurate!

Triceratops mistakes!

Triceratops? Not very good quality teaching resources.  Sadly, errors involving the Dinosauria are all too common.  Picture credit: Everything Dinosaur.
