There's a four foot tall, seven foot long dinosaur roaming around the Charlotte area and he is trying to encourage kids to spend part of their summers reading.
The Dilophosaurus is a part of the Dinosaurs Alive attraction at Carowinds.
The theme park is partnering with Charlotte Mecklenburg Libraries.
Carowinds is donating free tickets to all 20 of Charlotte's libraries, they'll be used as prizes for their summer reading program. When a child completes the goal of 20 hours of summertime reading, they will be entered into a drawing to win 4 tickets to take their family to Carowinds.
