We are really looking forward to January's "Dinosaur Dig" unit from Mother Goose Time. Luckily I have a little boy that really likes dinosaurs so we have lots of dinosaur books already. Mother Goose Time also provides a list of books that go along with each day of the "Dinosaur Dig" preschool curriculum. We will be checking most of these suggested books out from our local library. Subscribers to the Mother Goose Time curriculum can find the suggested books in their Planning Journal.
Here you will find each of the suggested books divided by each of the four weeks of the unit. If you click on the title of the book you will be able to find out more about the book.
