From fangirling over films like The Land Before Time & Jurassic Park when I was a kid to my countless visits to the American Museum of Natural History, my fascination with dinosaurs has only grown as I’ve gotten older.

Whoever says dinosaurs are JUST for boys is seriously mistaken. In case you haven’t heard: Girls dig dinosaurs too (pun intended)!

Printz Honor-winning author Kenneth Oppel’s latest YA historical fiction novel Every Hidden Thing beautifully defies gender stereotypes with its heroine Rachel Cartland, a brilliant girl who has her heart set on pursuing a life as a paleontologist despite her father’s wishes for her to simply focus on finding a husband. Throughout the novel, Rachel strives to find a way to show her father that she is capable of becoming a gifted fossil hunter in a field dominated by men.

Inspired by Oppel’s heroine and her fierce love of dinosaurs, we are giving away a #SheRex Prize Pack! Dinosaurs are badass and so are the ladies who love them. If you’re a girl who’s a hardcore dino-nerd and daydreams about venturing off on exciting fossil-hunting expeditions, this giveaway is for you!

The #SheRex Prize Pack includes:
  • A $50 FOSSIL gift card
  • A black & white dino-print scarf
  • A stylish wool fedora
  • A 5×7 travel journal
  • A cute dinosaur iPhone 6s Plus case
  • A MIRA insulated water bottle
  • A copy of Every Hidden Thing

  1. Pterodactyls are freaky (and my favorite). 🙂

  2. splanz102 says:

    I love Triceratops because they have my name in their name (Tri-SARA-tops). 🙂

  3. Lauraj123 says:

    T-rex obviously. Their sheer power and size was astonishing and it is so crazy to think something like that ever existed!

  4. Sundazeowl says:

    I love pterodactyl

  5. KristyPetree says:

    Brontosaurus is my favorite, the gentle giant. They’re herbivores (from what we know). I’m fascinating at how large they are; it’s both beautiful and eerie. Thanks!

  6. June says:

    My favorite dinosaur is the Brontosaurus/Apatosaurus. I have no idea but part of me feels like it’s probably from watching Land Before Time as a kid. I’m the biggest dinosaur lover — going to the AMoNH was the highlight of my life. I didn’t even look at anything after I saw the dinosaurs.

  7. I love the T-Rex! Come on, they are the kings of dinosaurs!!

  8. trangel1 says:


  9. I’ve always loved dinosaurs, Jurassic Park was my favorite as a kid. My favorite is the velociraptor

  10. hippiechick1955 says:

    The ungainly herbivorous Unaysaurus which was discovered in Brazil in 1998. It wasn’t announced to the press until 2004. The fact that weren’t large , were plant eating, and lived in Brazil – far, far away from me!

  11. Alexa says:

    Pterodactyl. And as a whole, I love dinosaurs because they seem almost like mythical creatures, and the mere fact that they actually existed is amazing!

  12. megtrail1323 says:

    I’ve always loved dinosaurs! Whenever my mom would take me to the library, I’d race to the dinosaur section. My favourite Dino has always been the brachiosaurus. They have breathers on the top of there heads so they can go underwater. They’re front legs are longer then there back legs so when you watch Jurassic Park there’s no way that they could rear up like that in the film. Recent research says that they may have been warm blooded even! Love finding out new info on dinosaurs even now!

  13. Cali_mermaid says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! I love the T-Rex because of it’s power; I love dinosaurs because I feel they are so mysterious and I wish we knew more about them. 😉

  14. bettlek says:

    I have always liked the Megalodon because of a book I checked out from my hometown library almost every week as a child. I always found the Megalodon, and almost any other dinosaur for that matter, scary yet fascinating because it no longer existed

  15. Bluelepard says:

    My favorite dinosaurs are the Brachiosaurus because they are so peaceful. No vicious hunting and eating like the T-rexs and Velociraptors! I mean just watch Jurassic Park, they are the best part of the park! I love dinosaurs in general because there is still so much unknown about that, a lot of what is known is conjecture, so they make great characters of the imagination!

  16. Lov3tC says:

    Honestly I love dinosaurs because my son does and he’s been into dinosaurs since he was 3! He’s 4ish and in preK now and he wears a different dinosaur tshirt everyday for school. So cute!

  17. abc1111 says:

    Sounds like a good book! My 2 year old niece loves dinosaurs. She has puzzles, iPad games, books, tv shows, and action figures of dinosaurs. She even pretends to be one every day!

  18. kaykaki says:

    Stegosaurus is my fave because it looked cool and ate plenty of veggies.

  19. Hmm, just one favorite dinosaur? I wanted to be a paleontologist for most of elementary school, largely due to the amazing dinosaur exhibit at the Museum of Natural History in New York. I guess Pterodactyl is my favorite because it could fly.

  20. EmmyCon says:

    The Apatosaurus is my favorite. This is the equivalent to Little foot in the Land Before Time. And, it is my favorite literally because of the Land Before Time!

  21. bobbie.gilbert says:

    Dinosaurs are just awesome!!!
    I have had a great love for dinosaurs forever.
    I was able to pass this fascination to my 4 girls and 1 boy. We LOOOOVVVVE everything dinosaurs.

  22. notsoteenreads says:


  23. My favourite is the Allosaurus because it’s like a T-Rex but I really like the markings / bumps around their eyes!

  24. 2many2read says:

    I have a soft spot for the animated dinosaurs of The Land Before Time…love Petrie & Ducky (“Yep Yep Yep”) ❤

    And I love Apatosauruses and Stegosauruses!

  25. Kristen says:

    My favorite has always been the Brontosaurus

  26. deduvic says:

    Last year I had a dinosaur themed 30th birthday/Christmas party and got so many dinosaurs and wreaths to decorate with. My favorite was a triceratops!

  27. kendrapedia says:

    My fav is archaeopteryx. I love the different illustrations with artist rendered colors for the feathers. Such an ugly bird, but beautiful dinosaur!

  28. brittacakes20 says:

    I love Velociraptors!! I use to collect them and rewatch Jurassic Park all the time so I could see them

  29. alig1020 says:

    I’ve always thought that triceratops were cool.

  30. mandapanda82 says:

    My favorite was the Triceratops because of my sister’s name Sarah! We always loved going to the dino exhibit at the science center with life-size animatronic dinos.

  31. mythoughtslit says:

    I always liked Velociraptors thanks mostly to Jurassic Park. But yeah, they are super interesting and smart.

  32. Steph says:

    I love the Deinocheirus dinosaurs because they’re the most mysterious of all of them.

  33. kcmmp13 says:

    My favorite is the Pachycephalosaurus! I’ve loved it ever since I had to do a report on it in 7th grade.

  34. leavemeialone says:

    Honestly I don’t know much about dinosaurs. So I just googled some. I think Compsognathus longipes is pretty cool. I like how it is the smallest dinosaur.

  35. books4susie says:

    T-Rex because they were so fierce!

  36. bookraptor says:

    Hard to say, have a few.. let’s go with sarcosuchus, but I love megaufauna so I’ll throw in a terror bird!!

  37. Gorelenore says:

    stegosaurus 🙂

  38. book16worm says:

    My favorite is the T. rex, I remember reading about the T. rex named Sue when I was younger and a few years ago was able to see her skeleton at a museum in Chicago, an incredible experience!

  39. reneejr says:

    Eohippus was the earliest-known horse – it was the size of a tiny dog. Eohippus is my favorite dino because I have loved and studied horses from a very young age, and how awesome it would be to have a “tiny horse” for a house pet.

  40. Elise036 says:

    The stegosaurus has always been high on my list. I even told my Kindergarten teacher I wanted to be a paleontologist when I grew up.

  41. Tusora says:

    T. rex! It’s little arms are so cute!

  42. gabbiechang says:

    T-Rex! It’s a classic!

  43. Sloth says:

    Pterodactyl – Jurassic Park movies made me love dinosaurs

  44. bamaforever says:

    Saurolophus because of Ducky from Land Before Time 🙂

  45. Panda83 says:

    Velociraptors rule!

  46. kuroneico says:

    T-Rex because it’s fierce and strong.

  47. FriendsRbooks says:

    My favourite is definitely the stegosaurus! My love for the stegie goes back to when I was a kid and watching Land Before Time–gotta love Spike!

  48. susanbeamon says:

    I like the raptors. So much like our big birds of prey now. Met them in the Jurassic Park movies. T-Rex used to be my favorite, but he’s so big and slow compared to the raptors.

  49. TheCosmicReader says:

    My favorite dinosaur is the Velociraptor. They terrified me during the first couple of Jurassic Park films, but then they grew on me in Jurassic World. They’re super intelligent, clever and fast.I have a lot of respect for them now. 🙂

  50. says:

    T-Rex because he has a big head and little arms. (sorry, I could not resist)

  51. Captainasgard says:

    I truly love pterodactyls because they can fly, scream a majestic battle cry and stab things with their beak and if that isn’t fierce then I don’t know what is! They are magnificent beasts of the sky and the land! I personally think that they would be terrifying to encounter in real life because they could sneak up on you like no other dino can!

  52. Izzybelladonna says:

    Fav dio: velociraptor because those things are smarter than me and faster than me and are literally just so cool. Dinosaurs in general are just cool like why can’t I have one?? Darn you Jurassic Park for making me want a dinosaur!

  53. Wulfwyn says:

    Pterodactyls. They fly. Lol.

  54. Sistercatface says:

    My favorite dinosaur is the Diplodocus because I love how they’re shaped and they’ve always seemed really cool to me 😊. Also I love names that are hard to pronounce 😜.

  55. bookworm2010 says:

    I’m not really sure if I have a favorite Dinosaur. I definitely love all the Dinos in The Land Before Time. Especially Ducky.

  56. It’s so hard to pick just one favorite. I dreamed of going on a dig and finding dinosaur bones, but at the same time, it would be so sad. I suppose I will choose the Triceratops. They have that lovely headplate and those vicious looking horns, but are herbivores. I just love that they look so tough, but aren’t meat eaters.

  57. CaptainAmerica says:

    Utah Raptor, because I live in Utah
    Yes, its a real dinosaur, discovered here

  58. caherrin says:

    T-rex of course!! I think that’s the most popular dinosaur that everyone knows and loves!! They are all pretty cool though! It’s hard to believe they ever really existed here on Earth! Just mind-boggling and amazing!!

  59. smbirds says:

    I love the T-Rex!

  60. bison61 says:

    favorite would be Tyrannosaurus Rex-because he ruled the world!

  61. Tash says:

    Pterodactyl, who doesn’t love dinosaurs if they grew up in the 90s or so especially with Jurassic Park?

  62. mrsmchappell says:

    Pterodactyls are my favorite. They are just so interesting looking…

  63. Luce says:

    The Brontosaurus has always been my favorite!

  64. TR777 says:

    I loved everything dinosaur as a child–of course my favorite was the Triceratops

  65. rivsocsmith says:

    Brontosaurus, because it is a name I know.

  66. barblima says:

    Raptors, because they hunt in packs and they think and analyze what they are going to do.

  67. blkel14 says:

    I love all of the giant herbivores!

  68. Tracinator says:

    I love me some pterodactyls!

  69. Svs2789 says:

    Love the Spinosaurus – I am swayed by my 3 year old. It’s his favorite:)

  70. michstjame says:

    I first became fascinated by the brontosaurus when I was a kid and I love them still. They truly were gentle giants and while they may not be the stars that other dinosaurs have become, they will always have a special place in my heart. 🙂

  71. BethElderton says:

    Velociraptors—thanks to ‘Jurassic Park’ Cunning creatures…and those wicked claws

  72. smlashley876 says:

    Brontosauras. I used to draw them in my notebooks in class because they’re ADORABLE and easy to doodle. Plus it reminds me of The Land Before Time #rightinthechildhood

  73. MRSheila says:

    T-Rex because of their sheer power.

  74. keyand004 says:

    Pteranodons and velociraptors because of land before time and Jurassic park!

  75. kpg813 says:

    Stegosaurus is my favorite, looks like a gentle giant to me!

  76. mathusnt says:

    Apatosaurus is my favorite, I feel like they’re so chill dinosaurs and I kind of relate to them somehow. (although I don’t have a long neck haha)

  77. RoRo says:

    Saurolophus Ducky from Land before time 😜

  78. schnoodle says:

    T-rex because they’re the king of the dinosaurs

  79. I love dinosaurs because they’re one of the first animals. My favorite is Apatosaurus.

  80. tacos_tais says:

    Tyrannosaurus rex …they’re awesome.

  81. KateT16 says:

    Brontosaurus! They are back in style! 😉

  82. The Illusionist says:

    They aren’t officially dinosaurs, but pterodactyls have always been my favorite. As for why I love dinosaurs, I think I’m just fascinated with the mystery of these creatures who roamed our Earth so long ago and yet are now extinct.

  83. xenwarps says:

    Stegosaurus, because it doesn’t take no’tin from no-one

  84. jenniferedit says:

    I like pterodactyls best because I love flight. But they’re all pretty cool….at least, in my imagination. Don’t think I’d want to run into a real-life T-rex or velociraptor!

  85. jenniferedit says:

    Um…forgot to answer WHY. But I don’t have a very good answer to that except to say that they’re simply awesome and almost mythical, since they’re not here anymore.

  86. Cheryl says:

    My favorite dinosaurs are definitely raptors! I love dinosaurs because they are a different kind of species than the animals we see today, making them super interesting.

  87. Kei123 says:

    My favorite dinosaur is the brontosaurus. They seem so gentle and even elegant.

  88. Jill Myrick says:

    Our favorite type of dinosaur is a TRex. My son and I have so much fun learning about and playing with them. We love the TRex because he is big and powerful.

  89. Savhadden says:

    Apatosaurus because of Littlefoot from Land Before Time…My favorite movie as a child…and adult 🙂 I love how slow and simple they were. And the long neck! I have a dog now who has a little head and a small neck and she always reminds me of a dinosaur!

  90. alyssayuri says:

    I like triceratops. They remind me of me when i have pimples in the middle of my nose and two on the side of my forehead 😂

  91. Hdmd313 says:

    I loved the Land Before Time as a kid. Then Jurassic Park came out and blew my little mind. I always liked the Raptors. They’re cool in the latest Jurassic Park too.

  92. I LOVE ALL DINOSAURS BECAUSE DINOSAURS ARE AMAZING. But for some reason my favorite used to be the triceratops? But after watching JURASSIC WORLD I, like, want a velociraptor tattoo. Seriously though. ALL DINOSAURS.

  93. CassieopiaB says:

    Definitely a pterodactyl. I’ve always been fascinated with dinosaurs since I was in third grade. It’s weird to know that these giant and amazing animals existed and now they are extinct.

  94. macarpentre says:

    I’ve loved dinosaurs since I was three and still freak out when I hear about a newly discovered dinosaur. But I’ve got to say I love velociraptor! “Clever girl” is my life motto, thanks to Jurassic Park!

  95. chelsysayshi says:

    I totally love the T-Rex. The boss lady of the dino kingdom!

  96. litledeb says:

    I’ve always loved brontosaurs. I’ve loved dinosaurs since I saw the Land Before Time as a little girl. I also loved the dinosaur movie, Baby. It fascinated me and I love their long necks and that they were plant eaters.

  97. achubbybookworm says:

    A T-Rex specifically SUE.

  98. kesmay says:

    Tyrannosaurus rex is my favorite! I love dinosaurs because they represent a time when we weren’t alive and I think that’s fascinating

  99. raventally says:

    I think the velociraptor is my favorite dinosaur! So fast and so super scary!

  100. skater425irish1913 says:

    My favorite dinosaur is the brontosaurus. I have to admit my reasons for that breed being my favorite is a bit selfish. He is herbivorous, and we not have the urge to eat me suddenly!

  101. MamabearCherei says:

    My fave dino is the t-rex in Jurassic Park!

  102. versatileer says:

    I like the Tyrannosaurus Rex because of its unique look and colossal size.

  103. mermaidmarissa says:

    A Brontosaurus! They look like they’d give really great hugs. I just watched all of the Jurassic Park movies the summer before last and got hooked. Dinosaurs are amazing!

  104. My favorite type of dinosaur is kind and smart with a great sense of humor.

    Specifically my favorite dinosaur is Bob, he is really cool, likes to have a good time.

  105. lilyk says:
