Dig into the world of geology with the Rock On series Fantastic Fossils introduces readers to the different types of fossils and how they form, from petrifaction and carbonization to molds, impressions, and amber. Chapters discuss key fossils finds, such as perfectly preserved mammoths and the dinosaur-like, feathered archaeopteryx. Readers will be introduced to scientists who made important discoveries and contributions to the study of fossils. They will also learn about the way we use fossils today, in the form of fossil fuels. A colorful geologic time scale spreads across two pages and an at-home experiment provides the opportunity for hands-on experience. Full-color photographs will draw in the reader while easy-to-read text breaks down complex concepts. Glossary words in bold, an index, and phonetic spellings for those hard-to-pronounce geologic terms enhance and supplement the text. Checkerboard Library is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
