Digging in the badlands of Montana, workers from the Burpee Museum of Natural History have spent weeks hunting for fossils. On their last day of prospecting they make a great find: the toe bone of a meat-eating dinosaur! Judith Williams takes us on this adventure--from the dig site to the creation and opening of the museum exhibit. The dinosaur named Jane is different from any found before and it's up to scientists at the museum to identify her. In cooperation with the Burpee Museum of Natural History, Enslow presents this featured title, packed with photographs from the expedition and new museum exhibit, "Jane's World." This full-circle story supports the National Science Education Standards for "Earth Science" and "Science as a Human Endeavor."
