When this month’s issue of National Geographic arrived in the mail I was quite excited. On the cover was a picture of a dinosaur. I was immediately reminded of my childhood love of all things dinosaur. In fact, I don’t think I had read anything about dinosaurs since I was a child. It was a really great nostalgic feeling. And it has renewed my interest in them. I would love to find a recent book about them, recent because I know theories on them and their extinction have changed a lot since I was in elementary school. Unfortunately I am having a difficult time finding anything written about dinosaurs with the adult in mind, it seems like everything on Amazon is directed to children.
So I have two questions. Has anyone had this kind of reading experience lately, one that has remind them of their childhood and caused them to feel that old excitement? And does anyone have any recommendations for good dinosaur books?
