Praise For…

“Perfect for the young, budding paleontologist! If you love someone who loves dinosaurs, Dinosaur Book for Kids is for you. Packed with facts and fun, your child will spend endless hours coloring and learning about all their favorite prehistoric creatures and may even find some new dinos to love.  The kid-friendly language, along with the beautiful coloring pages, make this teacher-mom excited to use both at home and in the classroom!” —Debra Carnes, M.Ed., California K-8 STEM educator
“Katie Henries-Meisner’s Dinosaur Book for Kids is exactly what young dinosaur fans will love. It’s full of fascinating facts about these mesmerizing creatures that kids will be able to retain, especially with the added aid of coloring the dinosaur. In my experience as a preschool teacher/director for 20+ years, I know this will be a favorite at home as well as in the classroom.” —Sarah Otañez, Director, Vallejo Parent Nursery School and American Canyon Co-op Preschool
“There are many books out there about dinosaurs (a perennial favorite topic of children!).  What differentiates this book from others is that Dinosaur Book for Kids is not only a fantastic book for families of preschoolers and kindergartners to read aloud to their children, but the text is written at a level that many first and second graders will be able to read on their own, with just a little help from an adult. What an empowering experience for young paleontologists!” —Nicole Bandy, M.Ed., elementary intervention specialist, co-founder and founding third grade teacher of Vallejo Charter School
“This book is perfect for the classroom and at home. As a teacher who explores dinosaurs with my K-1 students in ‘Dinovember,’ I appreciate that for each dinosaur, there are two drawings to color. One illustration is more scientific with pronunciation and diet, and the other image with the dinosaur in a landscape invites more coloring creativity. This book does a great job of giving some facts, but not being too overwhelming for young learners. I have never come across a coloring book like this before and look forward to using it in my classroom.” —Rachel Ramsey, kindergarten and first grade teacher, Grass Valley Charter School
“From interest to obsession, all kids like dinosaurs. That’s why, as a first grade teacher, I believe that Katie Henries-Meisner’s Dinosaur Book for Kids is a must-have for all early-elementary classrooms. Students will love to color their favorite dinosaurs and learn about many more! Ms. Henries-Meisner provides just the right amount of text without sacrificing essential and interesting facts. Teachers, parents, and children will enjoy this book together and adults may finally be able to keep up with their kids’ mastery in the subject!” —Giselle Gonzalez Vendrell, M.Ed, first grade teacher, Pelham Elementary School
 “This coloring book will bond children with parents and caregivers. The adult pronounces the dinosaur name and reads its characteristics to the child. The child will delight in the descriptions and will enjoy coloring the dinosaurs so much they will not even realize it was a learning process! Katie Henries-Meisner makes learning funthe way it should be!” —Patricia Griffin, retired owner of Play Pals Nursery School

How To Read More

If you love reading, but for some reason you read less and less, know that everything is fine. It happens.
Our lives today have so many things that distract us - how can we not put books away when all these movies, TV shows, YouTube videos, social networks and endless surfing in online stores are around ...
Yes, it's really hard to resist, but you certainly can!

In this article, we want to share with you some tips to read more often and more successfully.
These are some notes and some practices that we have collected for our SUNDOG BOOKS readers club.
And maybe it will bring more books into your life!

Why do we want/need to read more?

To start reading more, you have to understand why you need it.
And you will be surprised, but your goals can be quite varied:

- for work
If you read a lot on duty, then you definitely need to speed up the process. The logic here is simple: read faster → work faster → more time for books for yourself.

- for education
you need this for your educational career or sometimes you just want to read to learn. And, with all the new alternative ways to gain knowledge (podcasts, online courses and videos), the book still does an excellent job of this task too.

- for self-development
all exercises for increasing speed, one way or another, improve cognition and memory.

- for fun
because good books always = fun!

Book lovers have an additional special goal for reading more often. If you love literature, you will understand what we mean: you want to catch everything - to follow modern literature, and not forget about the classics, look into non-fiction and children's publications. And there’s so much you want to reread! The goals are ambitious, but attainable if you read a lot.


And so - How to read more:
We will tell you about the methods that we use ourselves. Perhaps some will suit you as well.


15 minutes a day

You've probably already heard this rule: if you want to start a healthy habit, devote 15 minutes a day to it. Once upon a time, we all read irregularly, in jumps and starts. Sometimes we cannot open a book we have begun weeks ago. Therefore, you should decide to create a rule: devote at least 15 minutes a day to reading. Try reading before bed, or maybe during lunchtime, or even when you are having your morning coffee.

You will see progress immediately. You will notice that almost always your 15 minutes will grow into half an hour or more. But the most remarkable thing is that in three weeks your hands themselves will be looking for a book.


50 First Pages
This method advises - If the book hasn't hooked you from the first 50 pages, put it aside! Life is too short to read uninteresting books.

It is necessary to change the approach to books. At first it will be hard for you to stop and put the book down. Even if we put the book away, it will seem to reproach us from the shelf, mocking us as quitters. But in the end we should come to one simple thought: if it doesn’t hook your attention, you should not force yourself to read it.

***Fifty pages is not a bad test. Not the most objective, but definitely effective. It helps to determine whether it interests you or not, and whether to spend time on things that do not excite.


Reader's Diary

This should be used to improve the quality of reading - to make it more conscious. For starters, it can be a simple notebook with headings:

  • Author
  • Year of publication
  • Main characters
  • Scene
  • Plot
  • Theme
  • Quotes

And, yes, a reader's diary is not a thing about quantity, but about quality. But, it can also motivate. When you open your diary and start looking at quotes (especially quotes), you immediately really want to read.


Maybe a Book Bet?
Several people can participate. Members of the betting group can come from friends, family, and also your colleagues. And of course you can set your own rules for participation, but we'll give you a simple example:

Everyone in the group should read and review a book over the course of a month with weekly updates. Anyone who does not finish a review buys the book for all other participants for the next month.


Speed Reading

Another effective way to increase the amount you read is speed reading. The logic here is simple - the faster you read, the more books you can enjoy.

*There are many online courses on speed reading, and you can also study on your own using instructional books. But, it is worth noting that this is a serious learning process that will require some effort on your part.



Reading every day is quite attainable, the main thing is to try to make it a habit.
Sometimes, instead of heading for Facebook, try opening a book and soon you won’t even remember why you needed to wander around social media.
And also - don't forget about audiobooks. They are a cool way to take the load off your eyes sometimes and just immerse yourself in the story. Some books are really strong in voice acting.
