Dig into a Good Book - Dinosaurs Books


All kids love dinosaur books, and that is why I was so excited about this years theme, "Dig up a Good Book.”  Our Summer Reading Club starts on June 3rd. You can pre-register here. 

Children don't need to follow any type of reading list; rather, it's more important to let children choose items that like. This will help children develop a life long love of reading.  

For my friends who are dinosaur fans I have listed several items that I think you will enjoy.  If you have any questions or need additional suggestions just ask.  We would be happy to help you. .
