Ms. Lernin takes Ronnie back in time and space to experience the Mesozoic Era first hand, coming face-to-face with real-life dinosaurs and reptiles. There have been a lot of good books for kids about dinosaurs, but this series takes the unique approach of showing the important effects the dinosaur’s era has had on our world today.
