“Katie Henries-Meisner’s Dinosaur Book for Kids is exactly what young dinosaur fans will love. It’s full of fascinating facts about these mesmerizing creatures that kids will be able to retain, especially with the added aid of coloring the dinosaur. In my experience as a preschool teacher/director for 20+ years, I know this will be a favorite at home as well as in the classroom.” —Sarah Otañez, Director, Vallejo Parent Nursery School and American Canyon Co-op Preschool
“There are many books out there about dinosaurs (a perennial favorite topic of children!). What differentiates this book from others is that Dinosaur Book for Kids is not only a fantastic book for families of preschoolers and kindergartners to read aloud to their children, but the text is written at a level that many first and second graders will be able to read on their own, with just a little help from an adult. What an empowering experience for young paleontologists!” —Nicole Bandy, M.Ed., elementary intervention specialist, co-founder and founding third grade teacher of Vallejo Charter School
“This book is perfect for the classroom and at home. As a teacher who explores dinosaurs with my K-1 students in ‘Dinovember,’ I appreciate that for each dinosaur, there are two drawings to color. One illustration is more scientific with pronunciation and diet, and the other image with the dinosaur in a landscape invites more coloring creativity. This book does a great job of giving some facts, but not being too overwhelming for young learners. I have never come across a coloring book like this before and look forward to using it in my classroom.” —Rachel Ramsey, kindergarten and first grade teacher, Grass Valley Charter School
“From interest to obsession, all kids like dinosaurs. That’s why, as a first grade teacher, I believe that Katie Henries-Meisner’s Dinosaur Book for Kids is a must-have for all early-elementary classrooms. Students will love to color their favorite dinosaurs and learn about many more! Ms. Henries-Meisner provides just the right amount of text without sacrificing essential and interesting facts. Teachers, parents, and children will enjoy this book together and adults may finally be able to keep up with their kids’ mastery in the subject!” —Giselle Gonzalez Vendrell, M.Ed, first grade teacher, Pelham Elementary School
“This coloring book will bond children with parents and caregivers. The adult pronounces the dinosaur name and reads its characteristics to the child. The child will delight in the descriptions and will enjoy coloring the dinosaurs so much they will not even realize it was a learning process! Katie Henries-Meisner makes learning fun—the way it should be!” —Patricia Griffin, retired owner of Play Pals Nursery School
