A quirky and humorous children's book about dinosaur facts I learned nearly 30 years ago to share my love for dinosaurs!

About this project

Hi, my name is Brian Russell, and I've created a full-color, dinosaur-laden children's book called, What I Remember About Dinosaurs.

The idea started when I thought about how my baby daughter will never learn about the brontosaurus that my generation grew up loving because scientists now say they never existed.

I wanted to make a book to share my love for dinosaurs and hopefully inspire a new generation to learn all about these creatures that have captivated the hearts and minds of millions of people.  So I compiled a humorous book of facts I could remember.

The main goal of this Kickstarter is to give this book the best chance to succeed and give you all some extras along the way!

Your contributions will help pay for: proofs, printing, distribution, shipping, incentives, and marketing efforts.

There are tons of goodies to be had which you can read all about below. Everything from digital copies of the book, to desktop backgrounds, to custom prints of your favorite dinosaurs, signed books, magnets and more!

Please don’t let this idea go extinct.
