Poppins Book Nook: If you are a hunter of fossils

Welcome back to another month of the Poppins Book Nook!  Our book plan took a nose dive about a week ago.  None of the ones we had picked out seemed to be a hit with Conner.  Then, I seen this one and thought it was a fit! 

The book is about a fossil hunter in Texas that was looking for signs of an ancient sea.  I did have to change the wording in the book somewhat as it talks about the earth being millions of years old.  So, I changed those to thousands of years.

I took him to Caesars Creek State Park to a spot where the glaciers came through thousands of years ago to fossil hunt!  He had a blast!!

Half way up!!

Don't forget to check out the other hosts in this month's virtual book hop!

  1. Our dinosaurs in Montana were around an ancient inland sea as well. Isn't it amazing how everywhere you look there are signs of the flood...with scientists bending over backwards to call it anything else :)

  2. My boys love rocks in general, but especially when their are fossils involved. We went fossil hunting not too far from our house here in SC Alaska a few years ago and should consider making the trip again.

  3. You are so fortunate to live in a area where you can find things like that. Your son must have had an absolute ball discovering fossils.

  4. I love that you went out and actually found fossils! What a wonderful day you must have had!

    Thank you for helping to bring a spoonful of reading fun to the Poppins Book Nook this month!
