Dragon Bones: The Fantastic Fossil Discoveries of Mary Anning
Author: Sarah Glenn Marsh
Illustrator: Maris Wicks
A gorgeous picture book biography of fossil hunter Mary Anning, who discovered a dinosaur skeleton that changed the landscape of paleontology.
At home in her seaside town in England, little Mary Anning stared out her window. Unlike other children, Mary couldn't wait for a rainy day. Because when it rained. . . the bones were revealed.
With her father and brother, Mary would go out searching the damp soil after a storm, with the hopes of finding something nobody had seen before: a dinosaur.
After her father dies, Mary must continue her search, picking up his tools and venturing out alone. In her life, she discovered several creatures, but was never given credit. . . until recently.
