This Display is Dino-Mite!
January 29, 2013
There is something new creeping around the Library at night, and it's not bookworms! Here at the North Independence Branch, the dinosaurs have come back! Made from recycled foam board, they would love to have you come check them out!
Did you know that the first dinosaur skeleton was found in Haddonfield, New Jersey in 1858? Or that there are over 25 excavation sites here in North America? These and other fun facts can be found in our children's database collection, which includes Homework Hangout and Science Reference Center. These great resources are free to access with a Library card. We also invite you to check out the Discovering Collection to read in depth about dinosaurs, fossils, and theories of extinction. Better yet, come check out some of our books on dinosaurs! We recommend the following titles:
- Dinosaurs: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, by Dougal Dixon
- Dinosaurs Ate My Homework, by Scott Ciencin
- How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?, by Jane Yolen
- Dinosaurs Love Underpants, by Claire Freedman
- Vacation's Over!: Return of the Dinosaurs, by Joe Kulka
My favorite is the T-Rex. What's yours?
