Harry's class is learning about dinosaurs. This has raised some questions.
Harry: "Where can I see a volcano?"
Me: "Well, not around here. There are some islands that have volcanoes, like Icela..."
Harry: "Like and island with dinosaurs? Can we go there so I can see them?"
Me: "No, sweetie. Dinosaurs are extinct. That means they died out. They aren't around anymore."
Harry: "They're not stinkt. They're just far away. (Thinks a bit) Like Costco and Home Depot are far away."
Me: "Are there dinosaurs at Costco?"
Harry: "No, Mommy! They're just far away. Like Mimi and Pop's house. How do dinosaurs get so big?"
Me: "Well, they started little, like when they hatch from their eggs, and then they grew big. But, sweetie, they are extinct. They aren't around anymore."
Harry: "Yes. They are just far away. I can go see them on an island."
Me: "OK. Goodnight, Harry."
