Monday Geology Picture: Dinosaur Mobile

Posted by Evelyn Mervine

Dinosaur mobile hanging over the crib in our nursery.

Since my baby boy is likely to arrive this week, I thought that I would share a picture from our dinosaur-themed nursery for this week’s picture. This picture shows the lovely dinosaur mobile that we’ve hung over the crib. This mobile was hand-made by women in South Africa (providing key local employment). I ordered it from a South African website. However, it is also available on Etsy for international customers.

I think that a dinosaur-themed nursery is perfect for the child of two geologists. However, neither myself nor my husband know much about dinosaurs… and much of the nursery decor that we’ve found is likely not so scientifically accurate. So, we have some reading to do in order teach our son properly about dinosaurs. Does anyone have suggestions of good dinosaur books, including for children?
