Grade 3-5 Within each fossil lies a story of what that fossil once was, and how that fossil was made. Lauber's book is a key to those stories, explaining in a clear, readable style the processes of fossil formation and new scientific theories derived from the fossil record. Like Lauber's Tales Mummies Tell (Crowell, 1985), the book focuses on recent discoveries rather than reiterating outdated information. Lauber includes current theories about dinosaurs based on fossilized dinosaur eggs, tracks, and bones. She also explains how a variety of different types of fossils were formed. The clarity of Lauber's style is matched by the exquisite color photographs and drawings that illustrate the book. It is aimed at a slightly older audience than Aliki's Fossils Tell of Long Ago (Crowell, 1972), but younger children will certainly enjoy listening to the text and looking at the pictures. This stunning book is science at its finestit is captivating, beautifully designed, and it both answers and evokes questions. Cathryn A. Camper, Minneapolis Pub . Lib .
