Dinosaurs Are Forever is an Electric Crayon Deluxe computer coloring book. Children will have hours of fun coloring and learning about 26 different dinosaurs. Aside from coloring, children can make calendars and banners with their masterpieces.

The Electric Crayon Deluxe computer coloring books offer custom banner, calendar and poster making. Design a banner with your colored picture printed at each end and your personal message in the middle. Write your own poster message to be displayed below your work of art, or print the picture with the computer-supplied description that will teach you all about the dinosaur you've just colored. Make dinosaur calendars and sticker your special events with the included four-color stickers. (To print in color requires a color printer.) Any picture may be printed in black and white and hand colored too.

1. Find the picture you want by clicking at the arrows on the top of the screen.
2. Choose the color you want by moving the "crayon" to the color at the bottom of the screen, and clicking on it. Then move the crayon to the area you want to fill, and click to fill it.
3. Design and print personalized color banners, calendars and posters.
