    This is PERFECT BOOK for the young paleontologist. Pictures and text go so well together to explain the different fossils (animal trails, plant and animals). As a librarian, I appreciate the well written titles, making it easy for kids to find the information they want. The chapter “Do Bones Really Turn into Stone” does an excellent job explaining the process of fossilization.
