Dinosaur Lady

Did you know the first Dinosaur bones were discovered by an female scientist born at the end of the 18th century? Learn all about how she changed the world in this new picture book biography!

As a kid, Mary Anning loved hunting for fossils with her father. One day, that hobby led to an unexpected discovery: the skeleton of a creature no one had never seen before! Mary had unearthed a dinosaur fossil, the first to ever be discovered.

She reshaped scientific beliefs about the natural world and led to the beginning of a brand new field of study: paleontology. Mary continued to make astonishing finds and her fossils are displayed in museums all across the world! The daring discoveries of Mary Anning not only changed the scientific world, but also helped change people's attitudes towards women in the field. Dinosaur Lady is a beautiful and brilliant picture book that will enlighten children about the discovery of the dinosaurs and the importance of women in science.
