Dinosaur Train used to be one of my daughter's favorite shows. She loves dinosaurs and would read up on every single dinosaur book she got her hands on. One of the reasons why she loved the show is because she got to learn all sort of interesting facts as well as the proper pronunciation for the different dinosaurs. Now that she is 7 years old, although her love for dinosaurs remain the same, sadly, she has outgrown the show. Her little brother, the G man, has just gotten introduced to Dinosaurs Train fairly recently. He thinks that the show is entertaining, but for him, all dinosaurs are dinosaurs. He is not benefiting from the scientific aspect of this show just yet, but I imagine that he will be soon enough. Being able to own a Dinosaur Train: We Are A Dinosaur Family DVD to keep in our DVD collection means that once he develops a stronger interest, he will be able to go back and watch the episodes again. Dinosaur Train is a great show, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone with kids between 3 and 6 years old.
