Fossils from Lost Worlds
Walk in the footsteps of the first fossil researchers to discover the earliest creatures on Earth, in this large format fact-filled picture book.
Packed with full-page colour illustrations and comics, this visual and informative book for children ages 8 and up looks closely at the incredible creatures to once walk on our planet.
Young fossil and dinosaur enthusiasts can explore the story of a spiny sea worm without tail or head, a walking fish, a peaceful sea dragon, and, of course, dinosaurs including the tyrannosaurus and stegosaurus.
Told through comics, illustrations and data, Fossils from Lost Worlds is also a fascinating insight into paleontology itself. It shows how science is a process of thinking and rethinking, questioning and learning. Through illustrated timelines of animal reconstructions and major discoveries, we can track the beliefs and theories that have brought our knowledge to where it is today, including important personalities and historical female scientists.
This big book of fossil facts is a must-read for young dinosaur and fossil fanatics to share and learn together with the entire family.
