MANCHESTER, NH – The SEE Science Center announces the publication of its first educational children’s book, with just enough whimsy to captivate the kid in everyone.

“We Thought You’d Never Ask!: Your Quirky Questions Answered by Dinosaurs,” is a delightful take on all things dinosaur, written by SEE Science Center’s Design Coordinator Adele Maurier, and beautifully illustrated in watercolor illustrations by local artist Peter Noonon.

Quirky questions are answered by dinosaurs, a book designed for the whole family to learn about dinosaurs together. In it, curious children pose questions to the dinosaurs. The dinosaurs answer with honesty and humor, leading to a better understanding of the age of dinosaurs.

The book includes scientific explanations and a glossary to help parents explain various concepts of the lives and times of dinosaurs to their children – or vice versa!

“We Thought You’d Never Ask!” is available online for purchase at, or stop by the gift shop at the SEE Science Center, 200 Bedford St, Manchester, NH for your copy. You can also purchase the book during a special DINOSAURS traveling exhibit hosted by the SEE Science Center through January 17.
