She Sells Seashells

She Sells Seashells

Mary Anning, an Unlikely Paleontologist

Coming July 16, 2024. Pre-order today!

By: Heidi E. Y. Stemple / Illustrated by: Emily Paik

A rousing, empowering nonfiction biography for STEM-minded kids.

Once forced to the sidelines of science, Mary Anning is now recognized as the world's first paleontologist.

At first, Mary Anning collected shells and other curiosities to sell in her family’s shop. Then she began discovering fossils that were monumental to changing the course of how we understand life on Earth. But educated male scientists at the time—men who bought and studied Mary’s fossils—did not recognize her skills, nor did they include her in their discussions as the field of paleontology emerged.

Self-taught and passionate, Mary was too busy making new discoveries to worry about those rich educated men. Today she is recognized as the first paleontologist. Back matter expands on Mary's remarkable life, including where she lived, relationships, and the tricky dynamic of being a woman of her time.

Mary Anning is credited with being the world's first paleontologist. That is, she is recognized now as such; in her day, it was a very different story. Mary was born in England in 1799, and she lived with her family near the seashore. She spent her days finding “curiosities” that would be sold in their local shop. These curiosities ended up being fossils and dinosaur bones. Mary never had any schooling, and her family was quite poor; they often needed the proceeds she made from her fossil sales. However, Mary was highly intelligent and motivated, so she studied independently and learned all she could about these bones and fossils. Unfortunately, living in a male-dominated society, Mary never was given the accolades or respect she deserved for her work in the field. With this book, Stemple strives to do so and sets out to honor Mary’s contributions to the sciences. She had incredible finds and while others took credit for her work, it didn’t stop her from pressing on. This book tells her story well, and the pictures clearly show that Mary was left out of the conversations, through such visuals as an empty chair at the table, a shadow, and more. While the book is engaging and interesting, the information provided in the endnote provides helpful scientific context, a short biography, and additional detail. Note that the author credits a man who helped her family during their times of struggle without providing his name, a deliberate choice because Mary’s name was excluded for so long. In a book for educating children, including information rather than excluding it is the better choice. This book is a good addition to primary or intermediate classroom libraries as a narrative nonfiction picture book.
