Are your kids as crazy about dinosaurs as mine are? We love learning about these creatures. From a young age, my kids have spent hours and hours building worlds for their plastic dinos, reading about them, visiting them in museums, and watching movies about them.This was a topic that was difficult to narrow down for What to Read Wednesday, because we have so many favorite dinosaur books. I hope you’ll share your favorites with us and that you’ll find something new to you on our list.

    I think we’re finally starting to get close to cleaning up after Irma. Whew!

      I hope all is well with you and your family, Lisa! We had power outages due to strong winds and rain when Irma passed over us. There are lots of trees down in our area, but no massive damage. I’m ready for hurricane season to end! Thank you for stopping by! 🙂

    You do such a good job compiling these lists each week and coming up with great themes.

    Amazingly enough not one of my boys ever really got into learning about dinosaurs! I even tried to sort of push them into it since I knew so much about them and had great resources on hand from all my years of teaching pre-school but they never really showed much interest. These all look like wonderful books.

      That’s funny! I had never really given them much thought until my first son came along. He was hooked the first time he saw a movie about them, and he had a tiny plastic dinosaur he made a bed for out of a checkbook box. He kept it beside his bed every night!
      Thanks so much for sharing, Mother of 3!
