Now out: Dinosaur Lady The Daring Discoveries of Mary Anning, the First Paleontologist by Linda Skeers

This is a lovely book that has very appealing illustrations. The outdoor ones are in earth tones and show nature beautifully.
Readers will learn the story of a young girl who had curiosity in abundance. Her discoveries led to the discovery of dinosaur bones and so much more. Mary studied and learned for her whole life; she became an expert even though she was not allowed to study in the all male universities of the time. Interestingly though male scholars came to her with their questions.
Mary’s story is well told. It is inspiring and I hope through this book will become better known. The end of the book contains additional helpful resources.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
