Do You Like Dinosaurs?

Then we have something special for you!

"Dinosaur George" Blasing and I have teamed up to bring his popular YouTube series to life in a whole new way.

Ask DG is a new series ideal for Kindergarten through Third Grade (or the reading level equivalent). It is also perfect for parents and teachers to read to their young paleontologists.

Mamta Madhavan for Reader's Favorite book reviews gives it 5 stars and says, "I found this book packed with information...The language is simple and understandable for a small child too."

The book is designed in a basic question and answer format. Every answer comes with humorous and explanatory illustrations. The questions come from DG's real-life fans. As the series develops it will become more interactive.

For me, the real treat is working with one of my heroes. George is a kind, selfless and generous human being. He made an impression on me the first time I saw him on Jurassic Fight Club several years ago. He is constantly working for the betterment of young people through education and compassion. We have become friends in that time and it is my privilege to be presenting his knowledge in this way.

In case you are not one of his millions of world-wide fans, here is more about DG from his official website: “Dinosaur George” Blasing is a self taught paleontologist and animal behaviorist with more than 35 years of study and research. Blasing is a public speaker, writer and television personality who has performed live to over 2 million people and has lectured in over 2800 museums, schools and public events. He is the writer, co-creator and host of JURASSIC FIGHT CLUB on the History Channel. Dinosaur George has spent over 18 years teaching Elementary, Intermediate and Middle school students about the amazing creatures that once ruled our planet. And with the addition of his latest program, Museum in the Classroom, he is now able to bring an entire museum to the schools he visits.

We certainly hope you enjoy this book!
