What's your favorite kind of dinosaur?
Do you have a four-year-old?
If so, then you are familiar with questions like, "What's your favorite kind of dinosaur?", "What's your third least favorite kind of dinosaur?", "What's the second most dangerous dinosaur?" I've lived through sharks, snakes, dragons (which is a bit difficult seeing as how they don't exist), airplanes (which are a necessary evil, but I don't like them), and dinosaurs. I've got to teach this child to read. Suggestions anyone?
In any case, for those suffering with dinosauritis, Elizabeth Kennedy has a top ten list on About.com. It's a nice list, but I'd add a few more, including:
Dinosaur Roar! by Paul and Henrietta Strickland, Dinosaurs!: The Biggest Baddest Strangest Fastest by Howard Zimmerman (answers all those dangerous questions), and Eyewitness: Dinosaur by David Norman and Angela Milner. I especially love the last line of Dinosaur Roar!, "gobble, gobble, nibble, nibble, munch, munch, scrunch!" Makes the little ones laugh every time.
