I definitely recommend the book even if you've seen the movie a thousand times. The book gives a lot more insight into the theoretical aspects of the story, but it's still fast-paced and action-packed.

My son captured this with my phone while I was reading and reviewing picture books yesterday. Today he's the second casualty of covid in my house. I can't believe we have been dodging it for so long.

mandarchy @eeclayton thank you. I think they have been lucky to get a mild case. I just hope I don't get it at all. 3w

I couldn‘t believe how close the movie stayed to the book. I read this more than a decade ago and it was just as fun this time around. Dinos and death, human hubris and it‘s inevitable downfall, so fun!

Book club last night equals headache this morning! Too many delicious chilli margaritas for this working girl who has to sit alone with her bitch boss today triangulating data on which kids to put in intervention this semester. Kill me now! The weekend can‘t come soon enough. Here we are at QT rooftop. I enjoyed the book and found it funny that my other book club read the Australian version of this book recently, The Fossil Hunter by Tea Cooper.

Pretty slow and a bit maudlin about women's"place", but really enjoyable fossil info and interesting and quirky historical figures

This one did not disappoint. I found out there are a few more What the Dinosaurs Did books that I need to check out. 🦕🎁🦖 #ChristmasInJuly

Great article & having just seen the newest Jurassic, I so missed Ellie Sattler & all the great, no bs women on this list. We need more of that in books & movies.

KathyWheeler Thanks for posting. That was interesting. I never thought about fashion trends, but I agree with her about prairie dresses and low rise jeans at the same time. WTF? 2mo
Bookzombie Thank you for sharing! I‘m excited to see Ellie Sattler back in the new Jurassic movie. I recently had a whole rant about prairie dresses with my husband. 2mo
