44+ Dinosaur Books and Activities for Kids

It's a new school year!  Can you believe that?  Our local county kids went back today and the city kids go back tomorrow.  Since school starts in August now instead of September, the summer seems so short.  Well, whether we like it or not, it's time to get back to the studies!  With a new school year now beginning, maybe it's time to add new books to your child's home library.  Perhaps you are a teacher who would like to add new books to your classroom.  Well, kids love dinosaurs and Usborne Books has a huge selection of dinosaur books for kids.

Be sure to click though the links to my Usborne website.  Usborne sometimes gives you a sneak peak at a few inside pages.

Dinosaur Books for Kids


One of our favorite dinosaur books is I'm a Dirty Dinosaur by Janeen Brian and Ann James.  You can read my review of this book right here on this blog here.
