“Dr. Scott the Paleontologist” – PBS Dinosaur Train television series

“Jack Horner ranks among the greatest dinosaur paleontologists of all time. He has also played an outsized role in popularizing the new science of dinosaurs, forever changing the way we look at these amazing ancient animals and inspiring many to pursue fossil-hunting careers.

With Lily and Maia, Horner taps into this vast experience to create a wonderful children’s book. Readers will head out into the field in search of dinosaur remains, and even set off on some time-traveling adventures! For the legions of young dinosaur lovers out there, here is a story guaranteed to spark imaginations!”

Lily and Maia: A Dinosaur Adventure

Available in English and Spanish, hardback and paperback!

This children’s book about dinosaurs, friendship, science, and fantasy time travel is a STEM must-read for parents and children.

The Adventure Begins
“What are you doing here?” I said out loud.
“Am I dreaming? Dinosaurs are extinct. There’s NO WAY we can be here together right now!”

This is the magical story of a young girl, a self-proclaimed paleontologist, who discovers “science for real” and grows her own confidence when she brings new dinosaur discoveries to light.

Jack has long understood the questions kids ask about dinosaurs – as he says, “They are always the very best questions!”

Lily y Maia: una Aventura de Dinosaurios

Por Jack Horner con ilustraciones de Grace Hattrup

La aventura comienza…
“¿Qué estás haciendo aquí?” dije en voz alta.
“¿Estoy soñando? Los dinosaurios están extintos. No hay forma
¡podemos estar aquí juntos ahora mismo!”

Esta es la historia mágica de una niña, una paleontóloga autoproclamada, que descubre “la ciencia de verdad” y aumenta su propia confianza cuando saca a la luz nuevos descubrimientos de dinosaurios.
