When Sue Found Sue
From a very young age, Sue Hendrickson was meant to find things: lost coins, perfume bottles, even hidden treasure. Her endless curiosity eventually led to her career in diving and paleontology, where she would continue to find things big and small. In 1990, at a dig in South Dakota, Sue made her biggest discovery to date: Sue the T. rex, the largest and most complete T. rex skeleton ever unearthed. Named in Sue’s honor, Sue the T. rex would be placed on permanent exhibition at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. When Sue Found Sue inspires readers to take a closer look at the world around them and to never lose their brave, adventurous spirits.

    My daughter (7 yo) currently wants to be a paleontologist and we love to visit Sue at the Field Museum so this book was pretty much made for her, she would give it all the stars!

    Super cute- love the illustrations and the cadence of the words. I actually didn’t know how Sue the T Rex was found and got her name, so I really enjoyed this.
