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.

Little People, Big dreams: Mary Anning is perfect for encouraging young children to pursue their dreams. Featuring innovative illustrations and extra facts at the back, this empowering series celebrates the important life stories of wonderful people of the world.
