my fave (imaginary) dinosaur book?
when pregnosaurs ruled the earth

I wouldn't know how to pronounce aposematism either. But I would recognize "triwhoreasaurus" any day of the week. And kaopectate too.

Darn scientists, naming the dinosaurs words as big as the actual dinosaurs were. My dino-addict has been training me to say the names right.

That is hysterical. I'm sure I will be in the same boat in a few years...but I will defer to DH who was a child dinosaur expert. I can rent him out to you?

I find that the secret for me is to correctly speak the beginning sound, end with "saurus", and then add a bunch of syllables featuring vowels and "pata". The key is confidence. My guys never know the difference!

TGID. Thank Goodness for Disney. None of this "smart" book stuff around these parts!

Oh no. I know there's no way I could ever make it through a dinosaur book!

Dinosaurs twisting your tounge? Try reading the "Oh Say Can You Say Di-no-saur" book by Bonnie Worth, one of the new Dr. Seuss Cat-in-the-Hat science books. It's really awesome, because they give you a pronounciation guide for each dinosaur. And make you look smart in front of your kids.

Which is kinda cool.

If a bit sad. :-)

Jill in Atlanta - you mean except for Dad, right? Bwah-ha-ha-ha! ;)

Fake it! We must, under all circumstances, keep children from knowing that ANYONE could be smarter than Mom herself.

Cute! I think we have the same books. ;)

Dinosaur books suck!

AHHHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!
That. Is comedy, my friend.
