“She Found Fossils is a children’s book about women in paleontology. It details the history, present diversity, and up-and-coming paleontologists in a storybook way with original illustrations that kids will love. It will be published in English and Spanish so that it’s accessible to a wider audience.
We want this book to showcase the diversity of careers and ethnicities that are present in paleontology today, while highlighting the scientific accomplishments of women worldwide.
The book will be 8.5×8.5 inches and softcover and also available in ebook format.
The fundraising goal we’ve set here is the minimum we need to cover illustration, translation edits, and publication costs.
Funds exceeding $4000 will be used to print additional copies of the book for donation to libraries and schools worldwide.
Funds exceeding $5000 will be used be used to cover the voluntary work of writing and advertising the book.”
