Daniel 8 and Mark 11 never expect that a day spent tubing at Flatbed Creek will turn into one of the most exciting dinosaur finds in the past twenty years But that's exactly what happens when they stumble upon impressions in the creek's shore that look a lot like dinosaur footprintsAfter calling a local paleontologist it becomes clear the boys have discovered something very important As word. COOL So very cool That's what I kept thinking to myself as I read this book It tells the true story of eight year olds Daniel and Mark two friends who happened to discover some dinosaur footprints one summer day in the year 2000 as they were tubing along the river outside their hometown of Tumbler Ridge British Columbia Canada in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains Their enthusiasm led them to discover footprints to excite leading paleontologists enough to get them to come out and explore too until eventually a visitor's center was built and the area is now protected and has yielded some remarkable dinosaur fossils The story is told by Daniel's father and includes many photographs from the fossil sites as well as some illustrations of dinosaurs and specific information on how to spot dinosaur footprints and the difference between theropod ornithopod and Ankylosaur footprints The storytelling is nothing remarkable but it is certainly engaging and creates a good balance of facts and technical information with personal details I really can't imagine any kid not loving this book at least any kid who loves dinosaurs I was always hoping to find dinosaur bones in my backyard If I'd read this book when I was a kid I would have been so jealous and super inspired I also love that this book shows that kids can accomplish their dreams and that they can make important contributions to the world they can even discover things adults haven't And really how cool is that ; For another awesome story about a young person finding fossils don't miss Stone Girl Bone Girl The Story of Mary Anning about a young girl in the early 1800s who finds some of the first and finest dinosaur skeletons in England
