Item description for Bones Rock!: Everything You Need to Know to Be a Paleontologist by Peter L. Larson & Kristin Donnan...

Introduces young people to paleontology from collecting the evidence and searching for clues to developing and testing a theory.

Publishers Description
Revealing true stories about kids who have made paleo-discoveries and providing young readers with the tools necessary to make the next big discovery, this book shows kids how to collect, clean, and study fossil samples in order to develop and further their own research interests. Examples from the fossil record and the laboratory help to answer questions raised by bones and by movies about dinosaurs, such as Could a Velociraptor really open a door? Covering actual field and lab techniques, methods for developing scientific theories, information about summer dig programs, ways to incorporate fossils into classwork at school, and plans for a future in science, this book provides aspiring scientists with applicable and educational research tools. From figuring out whether a sample is an authentic dinosaur specimen to reading about discoveries made by other young paleontologists, kids learn how to become active contributors to the field of dino-study. Entertaining and realistic, this book includes cautions about safety, mentorship, and permission.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bones Rock!: Everything You Need to Know to Be a Paleontologist?

My 9-year old Daughter looooves this book  Sep 17, 2008
My 9yo got this when she was 8. She has wanted to be a paleontologist since she was about 5, and this book is dog-eared from reading it. It has held her attention well.
Awesome  May 5, 2008
This is a GREAT book. My son loves it and it's very good for young people who are interested in the field of paleontology.
Bones Rock!  Jul 30, 2007
Well-written and illustrated book that will appeal to children who have an interest in rocks, and may be thinking of becoming a paleontologist.
Great book for older kids who are really into dinosaurs  Apr 10, 2007
This is a serious book for kids who are interested in paleontology. My son has devoured all the basic dinosaur books for kids, so this was good for going a step further. One great feature is the bibliography at the back; they suggest books to read, places to visit, classes to take, and even colleges to attend for paleontology, for those who want to work towards a career. Very inspirational.
Best Dino book for kids ever!  Jun 22, 2004
My kids are 8 and 10, and they are both obsessed with Bones Rock! They love it for the awesome photos and the tips about learning to be paleontologists. I love it because they are learning the scientific method without even realizing it. I'm a teacher and I think this is one of the best classroom tools I've come across in a long time. Wow!
