Start ‘em early, and your kiddos will be begging for a library card by the time they enter pre-K (if not sooner!). Beyond sharpening your child’s cognitive skills and nurturing their creative spirit, books are a fantastic distraction—especially when kick-butt dinosaurs are involved in the plotline. Whether you’re on the way to the babysitter’s house or you have an 8 a.m. doctor’s appointment—as you know, quiet waiting rooms and screeching children are no match for mama—all it takes is a friendly T-Rex wearing polka dot pajamas to win your five-year-old over.

Don’t be surprised when they low-key beg you to read their favorite dino book just ONE more time before shuteye. From illustrated picture books chock-full of new vocabulary to charming tales that present a valuable life lesson, these are the 12 best dinosaur books for kids.

Head over to our library for more books your kids will love!
