Within these pages kids will uncover the facts about dinosaur history from the Creation to recent discoveries. Let Ken Ham take you on a journey through time to explore these awesome wonders of God's design. From where dinosaurs lived to what scientists assume they know about these great creatures, dinosaurs have never been this exciting, revealing and simply amazing!

The 7 Fs of dinosaur history: formed, fearless, fallen, flood, faded, found, fiction.

My Review:

This book is one great book for any type of dinosaur study.  As a Home Educator, I plan to use this book in many research projects. 

This is not a typical dinosaur book, it is based on creationism and not evolution.  However, it explains why in detail.

I thought this was going to be a great read aloud book for my toddlers.  I was wrong.  This book is more for older children who are looking to learn more about dinosaurs.  The pictures however, were great for toddlers and adults alike.

To make the book more kid friendly, I would suggest prepared questions so they may look for the answers as they read the book.  My children (that are not interested in dinosaurs) got lost in the wealth of information.

I got to say as a Christian parent – I have been a little frightened in teaching anything having to do with the dinosaur age – I just was not informed.  This book explains from the “evolutionary belief to the Biblical truth”.  I was highly informed without being bogged down with too much “science terminology”.    Although, this book says it is for “kids” it is great for the non-science teachers as well.

I would love to have some of the graphics in the book as posters for the classroom.  They are just that good!

I would highly recommend this book! 

Blessings to you!  You are loved!
