What is the Church's position on paleontology?


A friend of mine asked me recently about the Church’s view on dinosaurs. He seems to think the Catholic Church like many other Christian churches and does not believe the existence of dinosaurs! I assured him this is not the case but would like to give him and myself some recommended reading on this subject. Can you please recommend any resources?
