A book from my childhood
This is one of my favorite books from childhood, and I was thrilled to find a copy for my son to enjoy. It is a wonderful story that I can share with him.

This is a 'what if'' [one of my favs. How do people [kids] find and incorporate a dinosauer into their lives? Wonderful depictions--a true literary classic!

The Shy Stegosaurus of Cricket Creek
Excellent read for young adolescents about two kids who meet a stegosaurus on their ranch, encounter bandits and learn a few lessons about life. I loved this book as a young teenager and was delighted to find it again. I enjoyed reading it again as a grandmama!
