A little girl visits the Museum of Natural History, and after that, she imagines dinosaurs everywhere. (In a fun way, not a scary way.) Her parents sometimes say, "Oh no, that's a raccoon," or whatever, but the girl continues to imagine dinosaurs.
I like it. The illustrations are gorgeous and show the dinosaurs as she imagines them. I also like that a girl is the main character--dinosaurs are so often associated with boys. And if your kid (or you) is really into dinosaurs, there's a page at the end with facts about the dinosaurs that appear in the book.
I Met a Dinosaur is available from Amazon.com
