Re: your first paleon book was
Mine was the Little Golden Book of Dinosaurs (late-70's or earliest
'80s edition). My parents gave in to my request to read it to me
(repeatedly...apparently till they pretty much couldn't stand it) as
well as a remarkably tolerant and now sadly deceased friend of our
family who treated us as grandchildren.
I remember being amazed at how vividly life-like the illustrations
where (in retrospect somewhat amusing), and spent countess hours
looking at them wondering how scientist-magicians could figure out how
these things looked so long after they died.
I guess I never really got over that fascination.

Actually, I would be interested to hear from folks about what their
on paleontology, for children or not, was. As a matter of a little
you would like to share with me, you can write off list if you want.

So the polar allosaur goes by the way of the "How & Why
Wonder Book of Dinosaurs" from the Sixties. I'm shattered.
mom & grandma read to me from it.
