Ridin' DInos with Buck Bronco - George McClements
Who would've thought there would be a book that would teach you about horseback riding as well as dinosaurs?! That is exactly the kind of book Ridin' Dinos with Buck Bronco is. Buck Bronco's Mesozoic Ranch got its start from some "loco-lookin' eggs" he found. Now he is an expert dino rider whether it's a biped or a quadruped. Buck can help you choose the most appropriate ride for you based on size and personality. His method of getting in the saddle is quite creative (and life-threatening depending on the species of dinosaur). McClements story is a creative way to give basic information about numerous dinosaurs as well as how to saddle and take care of them - which is essentially how you would treat a horse. The text is entertaining, but the fun and quirky illustrations are the best.
