Non-fiction Picture Book about Dinosaurs! (Just sayin')

Fern, Tracey; Kulikov, Boris (2012)  Barnum's Bones: How Barnum Brown Discovered the Most Famous Dinosaur in the World  New York:  Margaret Ferguson Books




This is the amazing story of the dinosaur hunter, Barnum Brown -- who first discovered Tyrannosaurus Rex bones.  The focus here is on Barnum who from a young age was interested in geology, and how he eventually travelled the world finding dinosaur bones.  The pictures are exciting (though I wish they showed more about the dinosaurs sometimes).  Still, this would be a great book for sparking children's interest in paleontology. 

Though older kids might enjoy reading it, it seems best suited for kindergarten through second grade.
