Dinosaur Lady celebrates the skills of the very talented paleontologist Mary Anning. This book follows her life and discoveries.
There is a certain magic as we see Grace watch her seed grow, not knowing what it is but completely dedicated to it, waiting and watching everyday for it to sprout.
Not only is this a wonderful resource that can be used in the home or school setting, the author reminds us that it is about the process and not the product, that it is okay to make mistakes, encourage them to tinker, and give them the freedom to be innovative.
I am a big advocate of having Non Fiction books readily available for children to read. They are great learning tools that often don’t make the reader feel like they are learning because they are having so much fun, yes learning can be fun.
This book is like DisneyLand, as your make your way through it there are surprises on every page, discoveries to be made and clues to follow. When this book arrived on my doorstep I literally said “WOW”, I knew in an instant that this would be a most treasured and loved book.
Without a doubt this picture filled book of facts about awesome animals will be running off the shelves. I am serious, this book is not only packed full of interesting information but its also a colourful wonderland that will have your least enthusiastic reader turning the pages wanting to learn more.
This Book Stinks! The publishers think it stinks, the author thinks it stinks…most people think it stinks and so do I!
In this book, Min the microbe (who is as small as a dot), takes you on an adventure looking at microbes and everyday things very very close up (microscopic). The microscope images by Linnea Rundgren are of everyday things we come in contact with such as paper, teeth and skin, which is completely fascinating.
