Little People, Big Dreams: Mary Anning by Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara & Popy Matigot. Let’s introduce the youngest dreamers to the first paleontologist and daring fossil hunter with the Little People, Big Dreams: Mary Anning book.
When Mary was little, her family was very poor. She used to help her dad to comb for shells and bones up high on dangerous cliffs. After receiving a book as a gift from a kind benefactor, Mary learned all about fossils. She continued to hunt for them and made the startling discovery of a complete skeleton of an ichthyosaur. Sadly, she wasn’t allowed to study along with all the other men, but she carried on making her own discoveries – including dinosaur poo – and advising the Geological Society when they needed help. It took a lifetime to receive recognition but we all remember her now as the mother of paleontology.
