Oh, How Young Kids Love Dinosaurs! Here Are 33 Web Pages About Dinosaurs

When I worked as a media specialist in an elementary school, the most popular section  was 567.9, the Dewey number for dinosaurs. Most of the time it was a boy who checked out the dinosaur book, although now and again a girl asked for one. I even had a kindergartener who only wanted books on dinosaurs. Week after week he took another book from the section until there were no more left for him to choose. Today, dinosaurs are still very popular in the elementary or middle school library. Here are some resources to get you started:
