It is a rite of passage for almost every parent: When your child is between the ages of three and seven, at some point, you will be hosting or attending a Dinosaur Party. Most likely, you’ll be attending many.
According to a report on CNN, a child’s obsession with dinosaurs (or trains, or trucks, etc.) is an essential learning behavior for children of this age, both for boys and girls. Still, doesn’t it seem like today’s kids are even more obsessed with dinosaurs than previous generations? Perhaps, the article surmises, but probably because so many species have been discovered recently, 30 new ones in 2016 alone.
