Inspirational James Gurney- Dinotopia

There’s nothing better than a good picture book.  Dinotopia, by James Gurney, is described on his site by “the wondrous lost island of Dinotopia, an enthralling world of art, science, exploration, and invention in which humans and dinosaurs live peacefully together.”  Take one look at the illustrations and it isn’t hard to imagine being there, at that time.  What a wonderful way for children to learn about history, geography and biology…as long as they realize that humans and dinosaurs were never on the planet at the same time.

The site has many resources for teachers- and parents.  Very Cool!
