Calder's Dino Book

Calder is soooo into dinosaurs lately.  He has several dinosaur books and soaks up all of the information like a sponge.  He knows so much more about dinosaurs at age 4 than I ever have!  So one day he sat down and drew out pictures of all of his favorite dinosaurs, and then decided he wanted to make the pictures into a book.  He stapled all of the pages together and asked me to write down the words on each page as he dictated them.  I wrote down everything exactly as he said (he even told me where to put the words on each page).  Of course I am biased, but I think the result is quite impressive! 

*Disclaimer:  Poor spelling is a huge pet peeve of mine.  But when it comes to dinosaur names, I'm way out of my league.  So, please excuse the fact that I have completely botched the spelling of many a dinosaur name!

So, without further ado:  Calder's Dino Book

Did you learn anything new about dinosaurs? :)

Great story Calder. I will have to read it to Alex. He is becoming more interested in dinosaurs too.

Cute! I think he's a better writer than most of my 5th graders :)

I love it! We watch a lot of Dinosaur Dan around here, and I am familiar with all of those dinosaurs. I just love that boy of yours.
