What are some of your favorite dinosaur reads? Do you have any recommendations for me? Let me know in the comments below. 


  1. I bet I can guess why Dylan's Amazing Dinosaurs is so popular with your son :)

    Danny and the Dinosaur was one of my absolute favorites as a kid. My parents signed me up for the weekly reader club and that was the first book that arrived (with a little yellow frisbee). I read that book so many times and so did my sister. Fun memories :)

    These all look like cute books and I'm glad your kids are enjoying them!

    1. Haha! Yes! It's his favorite. :) We also love Danny and the Dinosaur. Such a good read! The weekly reader club sounds like something I'd love. I wonder if they still have it? Thanks for visiting, Christina!


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
