Dinosaur Week - Scientific Saturday
Dinosaurs: The Most Complete, Up-to-Date Encyclopedia for Dinosaur Lovers of All Ages by Dr. Thomas R. Holtz, Jr. and Illustrated by Luis V. Rey
I know you probably don't immediately think "encyclopedia" when you think of bedtime stories, but if your little one is a serious dinosaur fanatic like mine, they will love this book. Jam-packed with illustrations and information, you could spend hours browsing through this book (I speak from experience!). Did you know that a Pterodactyl is not really a dinosaur? Or that Tyrannosaurus Rex and Stegosaurus never lived in the same time period? This book makes the nerd inside of me very, very happy! So if your child is interested in the scientific side of dinosaurs, think outside of the box and check out this encyclopedia. You won't be disappointed.
That brings Dinosaur Week to an end. Thank you for joining us as we shared our favorite dinosaur-themed books with you. We hope you enjoyed our collection and made a few new discoveries of your own.
