Dinosaur Lady: The Daring Discoveries of Mary Anning, the First Paleontologist

This is the story of a woman who dared to dig, explore, and discover. This is the story of Dinosaur Lady. Mary Anning loved scouring the beach near her home in England for shells and fossils. She fearlessly climbed over crumbling cliffs and rocky peaks, searching for new specimens. One day, something caught Mary's eye. Bones. Dinosaur bones.

Mary's discoveries rocked the world of science and helped create a brand-new field of study: paleontology. But many people believed women couldn't be scientists, so Mary wasn't given the credit she deserved. Nevertheless, Mary kept looking and learning more, making discoveries that reshaped scientific beliefs about the natural world. Dinosaur Lady will enlighten kids about the discovery of the dinosaurs — and the importance of female scientists. It also includes a timeline of Mary Anning's life and lots of fantastic fossil facts!
