NO matter how many times you tell children something isn't real, they will always be the judge of that themselves.
My five-year-old son has already learned about dinosaurs at school so knows they are extinct, and was told at the beginning of theatre show Dinosaur Zoo that what they would be seeing was puppets – not real dinosaurs. But none of this stopped him jumping up and down in excitement when the first dinosaur come on stage and asking, 'Is it real mummy?', to which I replied, 'What do you think?'. He answered, "Yes, they're real!". Creators Erth from Australia use ingenious puppetry to bring dinosaurs to life in the interactive and imaginative live family show.
