Halloween at the Museum
Getting down with a giant dinosaur
From the October, 2003 issue
For years, we had to coax our preschooler into going to "the dinosaur museum" by downplaying the inherently scary aspects of dead creatures on display, some of them enormous. He wasn't frightened, just (understandably) a little weirded out. Eventually it became a ritual to stand next to the huge looming skeleton and say "You big bag of bones!" with delight.
