BEST BETS

It's a kid's dream: a whole afternoon of dinosaurs and bugs.

Barnes & Noble in Ellicott City presents dinosaur stories geared toward the under-seven crowd. Starting at 11 a.m. Saturday, the show features the giant creature's habitats and habits. Expect some growling, a little fighting and some very, very big appetites.

And later, the big guys make way for puny pests when Joanne Settel, author of "Exploding Ants," hosts a 1 p.m. slide show that workers at Barnes & Noble are calling "not for the faint of heart." A truly gross display -- the type 8-year-olds love -- the show takes a graphic look at what animals eat, covering a sizable range of, well, critter sizes. Starting with bugs, the show traces culinary customs up the food chain toward reptiles, birds and even large mammals. Yuck. 4300 Montgomery Road, 410-203-9001.
