How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?
by Jane Yolen
"How does a dinosaur say goodnight when Papa comes in to turn off the light? Does a dinosaur slam his tail and pout? Does he throw his teddy bear all about? Does a dinosaur stomp his feet on the floor and shout: 'I want to hear one book more!'? Does a dinosaur roar?" Most certainly not. Dinosaurs give their mommies and daddies big hugs and kisses, tuck their tales in, and whisper, "Goodnight."
The Magic School Bus in the Time of the Dinosaurs
by Joanna Cole
The classroom is decorated as Dinosaur Land, but Ms. Frizzle -- inspired by an archeological dig -- craves a more authentic experience. Blasting off on another exciting science-related field trip, the Magic School Bus turns into a time machine and transports the class back millions of years to an adventure where they learn about dinosaurs, their habitats and diets, and even a Maiasaura nesting ground. Part of the Magic School Bus series.
When Dinosaurs Came with Everything
by Elise Broach
Just when a little boy thinks he's going to die of boredom from running errands with his mom, the most remarkable, stupendous thing happens. He discovers that on this day, and this day only, stores everywhere are giving away a very special treat with any purchase. No, not the usual lollipop or sticker. Something bigger. Much, much bigger. It's a dream come true, except...what exactly do you do with these Jurassic treats? And how do you convince Mom to let you keep them?
by Phillip Manning
In 2000, teenage dino-hunter Tyler Lyson stumbled across the fossil remains of a hadrosaur in the remote hills of the Hell Creek Formation in North Dakota. More than a collection of fossilized bones, Tyler discovered a threedimensional mummified dinosaur -- a "dinomummy." He and a paleontologist from the University of Manchester in England, Dr. Phil Manning, led an excavation that would change the way we think about dinosaurs.
