If you’re looking for a lively, informative and fun book all rolled into one, read Buying, Training & Caring for Your Dinosaur, by Laura Joy Rennert. I love that this book uses a fun format to teach children about dinosaurs. The book disguises itself as a guide book that gives eager kids a much-needed lesson on how to choose the right dinosaur. It is beautifully-illustrated and actually enhances children’s understanding of dinosaurs.
Author Rennert is also a literary agent for children’s books. In this book, she skillfully walks children through each dinosaur’s size, food preferences, physical qualities and suitability for house or apartment living.
This is an imaginative little book with adorable illustrations by artist Marc Brown. Brown, as you may know, is also the creator of Arthur, the Emmy Award-winning PBS television show.
Your five to eight year old will adore this one. Don’t miss out!
Best wishes and happy dinosaur hunting,
