Description


Read and find out about what archaeologists are looking for, how they find it, and what their finds reveal in this colorfully illustrated nonfiction picture book.

Archaeologists on a dig work very much like detectives at a crime scene. Every chipped rock, charred seed, or fossilized bone could be a clue to how people lived in the past.

In a starred review, School Library Journal called this a "delightful" book "that students will return to again and again." It's a fun introduction to the basics of archaeology and what you need to know to go on a dig.

This is a clear and appealing science book for early elementary age kids, both at home and in the classroom. It's a Level 2 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades. The 100+ titles in this leading nonfiction series are:

  • hands-on and visual
  • acclaimed and trusted
  • great for classrooms

Praise For…


"This book has the appealing layout and tone of the successful 'Magic School Bus' series whtle still being firmly grounded in reality. Three children, a dog, and a cat accom­pany their archaeologist friend Sophie on a dig. The woman explains the scientific process, exuding enthusiasm for her cho­sen career. Upbeat, conversa­tional text, fact-filled sidebars, speech bubbles, and instructive illustrations pro­vide a delightful cornucopia of informa­tion that students will return to again and again."
