Is There a Dinosaur in Your Backyard? The World's Most Fascinating Fossils, Rocks, and Minerals by Spencer Christian, Antonia Felix

Discover an amazing world of ancient secrets--right under your feet! How are rocks formed? Where do diamonds come from? Why did the dinosaurs disappear? Can rocks really grow on trees ...or come from outer space? Join popular ABC-TV weather forecaster Spencer Christian as he explores the extraordinary tales that rocks tell about the history of the earth and the life of our ancestors. Meet Lucy, one of the most famous human fossils in the world. Name your own dinosaur. Cook up some red-hot lava--or make rocks in your kitchen! It's an action-packed tour that takes you around the world and through your own backyard as you follow the exciting trail of rock history, legend, and lore. Lots of easy-to-do activities let you experience nature up close--and dozens of fun facts and illustrations bring the world's wonders to vivid life. Awesome! For children ages 8 to 12
