This story tells of the adventure of Peter and his friend Patty. The children enjoy watching as the two go on a "big dig" and look for a whole dinosaur skeleton. This exciting story teaches that many parts make up a whole skeleton.
Sample From Story:
Peter is a paleontologist. He works hard digging up and studying dinosaur bones.
If there is one thing Peter loves it's DINOSAURS!
Today Peter and his friend Patty are going on a big dig.
"We are going to find the biggest dinosaur skeleton I've ever seen," Peter said as he packed up his shovel and pick and headed out to the dig site.
When they arrived at the big open field full of rocks and dirt they began to dig.
Peter dug up something hard and old. "That looks like an old dinosaur tail" Patty exclaimed. "Yes, but it's only part of a skeleton, not the whole skeleton" Peter said. So he threw the bone over his shoulder and kept digging.
