Dinosaur Lady: The Daring Discoveries of Mary Anning, the First Paleontologist
Written by Linda Skeers
Illustrated by Marta Álvarez Miguéns

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.
Learn how Mary rocked the world of science and helped create a brand new field of study – paleontology. While she wasn’t given the credit she deserved, Mary helped reshape scientific beliefs about the natural world. This beautifully illustrated picture book biography of Mary Anning is sure to enlighten children about the discovery of the dinosaurs and the importance of female scientists!
