Dino Poems and Fossil Bones
About the Book
April Rhodes James has created an entertaining book of original dinosaur poems to offer her insights about various dinosaurs and prehistoric animals as a result of knowledge gained from the professional paleontological services business Prehistoric Journeys she and her husband Barry James, a vertebrate paleontologist, have owned & operated for 35 years. While the majority of the poems include details as currently understood, some of the poems are just for fun. All have been read aloud and were found to appeal to children as well as adults. In other words, something dinosaur for everyone!
