Ken Ham has again developed a bright, colorful, and interesting book on dinosaurs and this time it is for the little ones just learning to read through perhaps 5th grade. D Is For Dinosaur is a nicely rhyming book featuring each letter of the alphabet. It is not just limited to dinosaurs, though. Children will learn simple yet profound truths in basic terminology that they can understand.
No, the pictures are not "real" or "life-like" but they will capture the interest of the young child and that is the goal here. Children are enthralled with "dinosaurs" and love to have dinosaur toys to play with. They just know these are interesting creatures. Now, the Christian parent and teacher has a good educational tool to use with the youngsters.
This is a flip-book and the flip side holds information that helps prompt the adult who is directing the reading of this book with ideas and information that pertain to that particular page's picture and verse. This book is not intended to be an argumentative tool, but it is a good beginning book to teach the basics of creation, the flood, dinosaurs and it uses the alphabet for teaching Biblical truths. Example: "A is for Answers in God's holy book."
I highly recommend D Is for Dinosaurs for the Christian home library as well as the Christian school, church, and public library.
