Book Review: "D Is For Dinosaur: A Rhyme Book and More"

Ken and Mally Ham, authors of "D Is For Dinosaurs" have written a wonderful book useful for parents or teachers who want to instruct children about the biblical basis for dinosaurs. A hardbound book with engaging illustrations, "D Is For Dinosaurs" uses the alphabet as a way to teach truths about the origins of the dinosaurs from a Christian perspective.

The book is cleverly broken up into sections that attract the attention of any age. The first part of the book goes through the alphabet to demonstrate basic truths about dinosaurs and creation, paired with bright, attractive illustrations. The second part of the book mimics the first part, but includes useful and insightful notes for teachers and parents that point to scripture as a basis for the idea on a specific page. The Ham's also offer ideas for activities parents and teachers can use to engage children further. The illustrations in the second part of the book are left blank for smaller children to color!

My small children enjoy looking through and using "D Is For Dinosaur" and I would recommend this book to any parent or teacher who wishes to teach these biblical truths to the children they know.
