A visit from the past at a local school in Orlando brought some big surprises. When dinosaurs appeared at St. Andrew School the city was in fear. All the rescue heroes were called in. The police came, but they couldn’t get the situation under control. The animal control officers came, but this was bigger than any animal they had ever seen. The army came in full force, but they dropped their weapons and fled for the hills. Finally, someone stepped forward. One fourth grader was faced with the major challenge of his life. Can he defeat the dinosaurs? Come along with us as we take an adventurous trip with Mutzai. You will learn about dinosaur behaviors and habitats. More importantly, you will learn how you, yes you, can defeat a dinosaur.
Children, adults, and scientists alike are fascinated by dinosaurs. However, nearly all discussions of dinosaurs in museums and textbooks assume a distant evolutionary beginning to the earth. How can Christians reconcile apparent scientific consensus with the biblical creation story? Donald DeYoung demonstrates that evolution is not the only explanation for the existence and death of dinosaurs. He uses a question-and-answer format, supplemented by tables and figures, to offer the creationist explanation. The fifty questions include: - What was the diet of dinosaurs? - What happened to dinosaurs in the creation view? - Did dinosaurs evolve into birds? Appropriate for more advanced students, this book is a useful reference for home school and Sunday school teachers, parents, and anyone interested in dinosaurs.

Prehistoric creatures have again invaded Crater Lake National Park …and this time there’s more than one. Henry Shore has been Chief Park Ranger at Crater Lake National Park for thirteen years now and thought the days when he’d had to fight a rogue dinosaur that lived in the caves below the lake were long over. Until one of his park rangers, to save a visitor’s life, is in a deadly struggle out in the woods with a new breed of dinosaur worse than the last one. It’s as big as a man, but this one is a young one. And growing. Then more of the creatures begin to show up everywhere, threatening people and destroying the tranquility and safety of his beloved park. A tourist trolley filled with fifteen people is snatched up off the crater’s rim by another version of the younger one…but this one has grown into a giant with fangs, claws and a deadly tail. And this one has wings. Ugly Gargoyles, Henry calls them. For this one isn’t alone. They’re flying beyond the park’s boundaries into the neighboring towns. So Henry, with the help of his son-in-law, a paleontologist named Justin, and a band of brave park rangers, and a few good soldiers, must not only protect his park and his people from monsters once more but find their lair and destroy it and them before the creatures kill again. *** Dinosaur, Crater Lake, Klamath Falls, thriller, suspense, horror, SF, romance, paleontologist, mystery, paleontology dig, Kathryn Meyer Griffith, Jurassic Park

A Look at Science and the Sacred Stories in Genesis 1-11
Author: Stephen J. Kelly
Publisher: Xlibris Corporation
Belly Buttons, Dinosaurs, and Evolution explains the sacred stories in Genesis 1-11 in light of the science of evolution and the history of the stories in Genesis 1-11. The world of science and the world of faith use different criteria in their disciplines, yet properly understood, young people need not be in conflict with what they are learning in school and learning from their faith communities.
Investigates the idea that the natural disaster many scientists suspect caused the extinction of the dinosaurs occurred near Puerto Chicxulub, Mexico, when an asteroid collided with Earth, releasing deadly amounts of energy.
To help us understand what happened during the Ice Age, Peter Ward takes us on a tour of other mass extinctions through earth's history. He presents a compelling account of the great comet crash that killed off the dinosaurs, and describes other extinctions that were even more extensive. In so doing, he introduces us to a profound paradigm shift now taking place in paleontology: rather than arising from the gradual workings of everyday forces, all mass extinctions are due to unique, catastrophic events. Written with an irresistible combination of passion and expertise, The Call of Distant Mammoths is an engaging exploration of the history of life and the importance of humanity as an evolutionary force.
