Dinosaurs are fascinating, aren’t they? They did exist, but we haven’t actually seen any of them. They are strong, yet the largest only eat plants. There are what seems like a gazillion different breeds and all have different characteristics. Some being the size of our palms others being larger than buildings.
Some are green some are other colors. Not only are the reality of them extremely interesting, but putting them into fictional books is fun for kids as well. Some of our favorite books have dinosaurs being friends with kids or other animals.
Although in reality they may have been dangerous and fierce, they make for super fun friends in the books that we read to our kids.
Encouraging children to see these creatures as fictional while still understanding that they existed is not difficult and does not change the fact that kids will LOVE these books. These are our favorite Dinosaur Books For Kids!
