Summary
Mr. Tiffin and his students are back in another picture book, and this time the focus is on dinosaur-loving Kimmy. During a field trip to the natural history museum, Kimmy is thrilled to share what she knows about the Stegosaurus and the Archaeopteryx and even the ginormous Titanosaurus . That changes when one of her classmates questions whether girls can be paleontologists. Kimmy starts to feel shy. What if they can't? What if no one wants to hear what she has to say? It will take some help from Mr. Tiffin--and from a famous scientist--for Kimmy to find her voice again.

Join Mr. Tiffin's class as they learn about dinosaurs big and small, feathered and scaly, winged and ocean-dwelling. And root for Kimmy, the dinosaur expert . . . who might just learn something about herself.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* A field trip to the natural history museum with Mr. Tiffin's class? That's perfect for Kimmy, who collects fossils. She impresses Jake, a classmate, with how much she knows about dinosaurs, but when she mentions wanting to become a scientist, he responds, Girls aren't scientists. Surprised and deflated, Kimmy goes quiet. Looking at photos of paleontologists of the past, she sees only men. But in the next room, Mr. Tiffin calls her over to see an exhibit sign with photos of the woman scientist who discovered that dinosaur fossil. Hopeful again, Kimmy confides to her teacher, I want to be just like her, and receives a heartening response. An appended two-page section features Kimmy's favorite paleontologists, six women currently working in the field and one girl from the nineteenth century: groundbreaking fossil scientist Mary Anning. While all the picture books in the series about Mr. Tiffin's class are well worth reading, this one is special. Karas uses gouache, matte medium, and pencil to illustrate a setting unfamiliar to many children, while sensitively conveying Kimmy's emotions even when, disheartened and doubting herself, she stops talking for a while. Written with clarity and finesse, the story concludes with a pitch-perfect line. A beautifully crafted picture book.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2018 Booklist"
