About Linda Skeers
I've worked as a nurse and librarian but my favorite job by far is Children's Book Author! I've been making up stories since I was a child and being able to share them with others is amazing. I love to write books. I love to read books. I love to talk about books... Hmmm, I see a theme developing here!

This is the story of a woman who dared to dig, explore, and discover. This is the story of Dinosaur Lady.
Mary Anning loved scouring the beach near her home in England for shells and fossils. She fearlessly climbed over crumbling cliffs and rocky peaks, searching for new specimens. One day, something caught Mary's eye.
Bones. Dinosaur Bones.
Mary's discoveries rocked the world of science and helped create a brand-new field of study: paleontology. But many people believed women couldn't be scientists, so Mary wasn't given the credit she deserved. Nevertheless, Mary kept looking and learning more, making discoveries that reshaped scientific beliefs about the natural world.
Dinosaur Lady is a beautiful and brilliant picture book that will enlighten children about the discovery of the dinosaurs and the importance of female scientists. It also includes a timeline of Mary Anning's life and lots of fantastic fossil facts!
