5.0 out of 5 stars Open your eyes to the world of dinosaurs Jan. 6 2010
By Canadianladybug TOP 50 REVIEWER
Dinosaurs... Do you know a boy who doesn't like these creatures? I have three boys who love to watch, read or play with anything dinosaurs. We have Ice Age (the three of them), Disney Dinosaurs movie, dinosaurs toys (noisy one, Playmobil, Legos,...), and books. So when I got the opportunity to review Dinosaurs for Kids I requested it and waited patiently for it. This book is quite different than the other ones we owned. We do have a dinosaurs book that is Christian based but this new book is above and beyond what I was expecting.
Recently, my husband took in his hands to make me watch the Jurassic Park movies. Believe it or not, I had not seen these movies yet! So far we watched the first two and I still have the third one to watch. Mind you I totally realized that some information in the movies is inadequate but just to see the dinosaurs are worth it. I find them well done and it gives you an idea of what dinosaurs might have looked like.
To get the facts straightened up about the dinosaurs, the book Dinosaurs for Kids is a great resource! Ken Ham takes the time to present both belief systems; evolution and creation. He also points the reasons why evolution is not accurate. The sections of the book are divided in ages - formed, fearless, fallen, flood, faded, found and fiction. Each section contains tons of information that any child (and adult) will find quite interesting. Also included in the sections are scriptures and beautiful artwork to illustrate the text.
We have been reading this book together while we sit on the couch. We snuggle together and go through the pages. We learn together about the dinosaurs and the kids love it. Recently, during a sitting, the kids wanted to get their own dinosaurs while I read it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Scientific content? What scientific content?! Feb. 11 2010
First a bit of background: Ken Ham is the founder of Answers in Genesis, a creationist Christian ministry.

This book is full of half-truths and skewed scientific facts. If you have any desire for your children to think with an open mind and accept or reject scientific ideas based on evidence, don't bother with this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Please read this before purchasing this book Dec 6 2013
By Julie Manwarren - Published on Amazon.com
I was shocked at the extreme negative comments posted against this book. It is sad to me that a published book with a creationist young earth view about dinosaurs is so attacked by those that hold another viewpoint.

My suggestion is that if you do not hold a creationist young earth viewpoint, then DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. It's that simple. Books by Weishampel, Bakker and others may be more to your liking and in keeping with your beliefs and values.

But if you believe in the Bible, (not some part or portion of it), and because of that core belief, you hold to a young earth, creationist view point, then this book is for you.

Not sure why people are so upset. If God offends you, then don't go to church. If creationist beliefs offend you, then don't buy books written by creationists.

4.0 out of 5 stars See it for what it is Nov. 26 2013
By simerinl - Published on Amazon.com
This is a book written from a "young earth" christian perspective. There are a lot of hate reviews on it, however I don't see why people should fear alternative views and theories. I personally want my children to explore all possibilities. It's what works their young minds to reason and decide themselves. I don't have anything to fear from the evolution viewpoint they encounter daily. Why not give them ALL the information and let our children decide for themselves? Give them a book from each side of the argument. I believe in my children's intelligent ability to learn and reason.

This book was given to my great grandchildren this past year. It is wonderful because it tells the truth about dinosaurs from the beginning. A Christian book. I would recommend to all parents to buy this book so their children will know the truth. Nancy
