Bonus Episode 2 - Ankylosaur

Bonus Episode 2 - Ankylosaur (listen)

Aaron, Colin, Evalyn and Cami gather around the campfire to read Daniel Loxton's new dinosaur book for kids... Ankylosaur Attack!

We don't usually review books, but Daniel Loxton is Aaron's favorite science author for kids, so we made an exception. Ankylosaur Attack is the first book in the Tales of Prehistoric Life series and we were fortunate enough to receive a review copy (we've since purchased 2 more!). This is a "must have" item for any young dinosaur lovin' kids.

We highly recommend both of Daniel's recent science books for kids...

-- Ankylosaur Attack (Tales of Prehistoric Life)
-- Evolution: How We and all Living Things Came to Be

And if your kids are capable young readers, be sure to check out Daniel's excellent work on Junior Skeptic inside each issue of Skeptic Magazine.

Aaron's World is Heading to Dragon*Con!

The Aaron's World team (aka our family) is heading to Atlanta next week (Sept 2-5) for Dragon*Con! We're excited!

In addition to attending the Parsec Awards Ceremony and having tons of fun... we'll also be participating in a podcasting panel to discuss how we make Aaron's World.

Are there things you or your kids would like to know about how we make the podcast? If so, send us your questions (actuallyspeaking@gmail.com) so we don't miss any areas of interest. If all goes well, we hope to share the audio with everyone as a bonus episode.

If you'll be at Dragon*Con this year, be sure to say hi. We'd love to meet you!

P.S. If you'd like to follow our adventures at Dragon*Con, be sure to "like" our Aaron's World Facebook Page or you can follow me directly (Mike Meraz) on Google Plus. I'll be posting a few updates and pictures each day.

Nothing But Dinosaurs

Rumor has it, if you were at the Orange County Fair in Southern California recently, you may have heard "Aaron's World" playing at a very cool vendor booth... Nothing But Dinosaurs. Awesome!

This is an online retailer that specializes in... uh, well... Nothing But Dinosaurs! And it is really cool. If you're a dinosaur fan, or have one in your life, you'll definitely want to bookmark this site.

Big thanks to Troy (NBD Owner) for the kind email. And to Manuel for spreading the word about our little podcast. You guys ROCK!
