This review is from: The Fossil Girl (Paperback)
A well-crafted story based on fact with delightful illustrations. All of my class loved the story of Mary Anning as they became more obsessed with fossils! It has even inspired some of my children to beg visits to Lyme Regis with their parents! I was particularly glad to find a book which 'stars' a girl in a scientific role. This was inspirational for the girls as, all too often, 'fun' and interesting discoveries are perceived to be achieved by/more for the masculine gender and this is a stereotype that we are working hard to address.
