When Dinosaurs Die: A Guide to Understanding Death
|Author:||Laurie Krasny Brown, Marc Brown|
|Series:||Dino Life Guides for Families|
This book surprised me as I was fairly sure I wasn’t going to like the anthropomorphic characterisation. However it delighted me with the wide range of subjects these dinosaurs sensitively cover. They carefully acknowledge feelings such as anger, disbelief and sadness. Dinosaurs also explores suicide wars, illness while including diversity of customers and beliefs. This wise book gives potential for exploration and discussion. - Anne Whitcombe
