Description

Winner of the 2011 LIANZA Elsie Locke Medal for Non-fiction Shortlisted for the Non-fiction Award in the 2011 NZ Post Book Awards

Kids are fascinated by dinosaurs, and love the idea of the fossils they have left behind.

New Zealand has a rich fossil record, which is accessible to the amateur fossil-hunter in locations around New Zealand, including shells and plant remains, as well as the bones, teeth and other remnants of ancient reptiles, birds and fish.

This handy pack-sized guide features 30 accessible locations around the country where kids and their families can find fossils. Each location contains specific information on where to look and what to look for, as well as the geological background and other details of each site, and colour images of fossils that could be found there.
