Dinosaur Lady: The Daring Discoveries of Mary Anning, the First Paleontologist
Dinosaur Lady is about one of the first lady paleontologists, although during her time women were not thought to be as smart as men and were not allowed to go to college like men or have jobs. Mary Anning was determined to learn about the curiosities she found on the beach to sell at the market. Mary loved to walk on the beach to find buried secrets from long ago. Mary rushed home to find out more about the fossilized trinkets she had found. Mary would research and take notes on everything she found. One day on the beach after a storm, Mary found an entire skeleton of an animal. Mary researched, and many geologist and archaeologists came to view her incredible find. Mary continued to learn about the fossils she would find one the beach. I enjoyed this book because, like Mary, I like to find fossils and things of the past so we can learn about the creatures that used to roam the earth. This book was very informative and funny. I enjoyed the illustrations of the fossils of the creatures that was found. I hope to someday find a fossil of a creature and can name it on my own.
