Discovering Fossils is all about learning the history about fossils! The book progresses through history and shows when the first fossil was discovered and how much has changed in our understanding of our world due to the nature of fossils. People used to think that fossils were of mythical beasts, the bones of dragons and monsters, but then when the belief in those beasts faded the word dinosaur was created. Throughout the book there are charts, mini bios, and other intermittent materials that help one learn more about the history and nature of fossils.
