A book about extinct animals can possibly help spark a child's imagination by presenting the child with descriptions of animals that encourage visualization. The extinct animals that are described are no longer around for a child to look at in person at a zoo, and, in some cases, there are no pictures of the extinct animals that are being referred to. When reading descriptions of extinct animals, a child may try to visualize what a certain animal may have looked like and how it moved.
