Harry takes his bucketful of dinosaurs on another adventure, this time to visit the natural-history museum where everyone discovers a little bit of the past and comes face to face with their ancestors. Accompanying his sister, grandmother and mother to the museum so that Sam, his sister, can learn more about the Romans, Harry is soon bored with the armored statues with brushes on their helmets. After exhausting the entertaining activities of climbing on the display cases and trying to slide across the marbled floor, Harry decides to take a tour of his own, bringing his dinosaurs along for the journey. There they happen upon a room filled with dinosaur skeletons. The happy dinosaurs frolic as Harry’s imagination takes over, giving life to his toys. Bright and colorful illustrations depicting the energetic dinosaurs and their precocious owner are a perfect accompaniment to another of Harry’s trips. A bucketful of fun. (Picture book. 3-7)
