    Not my favorite by this team, but of course still wonderful. The verse isn't quite as poetic, the appeal is stronger for hunters of fossils & less universal, and some of the pictures seem a little, I dunno, inside-out or something. However, perfect for many curricular applications, and a must read for fans of Baylor & Parnall.

    Zowie. I've had this book in my tote bag for no fewer than three months, and I'd never opened it because I thought it would be a boring, outdated, limited-color look at fossil hunting. (And I'm a dinosaur-lover, so you'd think I'd be particularly kind towards a book like this.) Nope. So wrong. Still timely, still lovely. I absolutely plan to use this book during my rocks and minerals unit, and I might even plan a National Board lesson around it.

    If You Are a Hunter of Fossils is a book about environments a fossil hunter person would go to in search of fossils and what are characteristics of different fossils.
