"Splendidly entertaining and informative—ideal for any kid interested in fossils.” --Kirkus Reviews

Daring to Dig highlights the adventures and research achievements of a dozen women paleontologists, both from the past century and active today. The challenges they faced--both societal and scientific--are explored through a series of colorfully illustrated vignettes, as are their successes in overcoming these challenges. This book shows children that paleontology is a science for everyone.

A Book!!!

Huzzah!

(This is a project I've wanted to work on for a long time and feel so lucky to have been apart of! Here are some sketches I did in 2015 when we first started talking about making this. It feels cool to see how the art has changed in just a few years!)
