Super cute- love the illustrations and the cadence of the words. I actually didn’t know how Sue the T Rex was found and got her name, so I really enjoyed this.

I blame my brother for my extreme interest in paleontology; he was obsessed with dinosaurs when we were little. This story was wonderful and exciting! Plus, I love sharing stories of women in science fields with my daughters. <3

Tells the story of Sue Hendrickson from being a child who loved looking for and finding things through finding Sue the T-Rex.

It also talks about her being shy and then at the end calls her "once-shy." And I wonder if maybe she's still shy, but has found her people? The book points out that when she was an adult, she joined a team of other finders for the first time; I kind of wish more
