From the Back Cover
What is a fossil?
Sometimes it's the imprint of an ancient leaf in a rock. Sometimes it's a woolly mammoth, frozen for thousands of years in the icy ground. Sometimes it's the skeleton of a stegosaurus that has turned to stone.
A fossil is anything that has been preserved, one way or another, that tells about life on Earth. But you can make a fossil, too—something to be discovered a million years from now—and this book will tell you how.

Usually I can take or leave Aliki's smiling schoolchildren and their cartoon speech balloons. Here, everything they say is interesting or illustrative, and their enthusiasm is contagious.
My 5-year-old is somehow able to read a little of this book at a time (by aggressively guessing at the longer words, I guess) but with words like "imprint" and "preserved" it's closer to a second-grade (7-to-8-year-old) reading level.
P.S. The famous fish-within-a-fish fossil described in the book is on display at the Sternberg Museum of National History in Hays, Kansas, USA.
The book discussion different sorts of fossils: footprints and creatures captured in amber, as well as the sorts of dinosaur remains that most children are familiar with--those found in sedimentary dirt.
One of the complimentary things that I really like about this book is that children of all colors and physical conditions (wheelchair) are shown happily investigating.

Fossils can't tell anything. They certainly can't tell of LONG AGO. They can't talk! This book is nothing more than straight propaganda for the religion of evolution. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Scentist
