When Sue Found Sue: Sue Hendrickson Discovers Her T. Rex

Her endless curiosity eventually led to her career in diving and paleontology, where she would continue to find things big and small.

    Sue finding Sue celebrates perseverance in discovery and pursuing things that you were interested in as a kid. Sometimes those child-like interests stay with you long into adulthood enabling you to embark on something you never quite expected, like finding dinosaur bones. This book reminds me to support and help cultivate interests within my students!

  • Bethe

    Bookaday #80. Interesting bio about the woman who discovered the most complete, largest T. rex skeleton. Didn’t know she was self taught and accomplished in other fields besides paleontology. Love the back matter, lots of sources and glad to see the source of Sue’s quotes in the text included.

  • Laura McLoughlin

    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!

  • Rich Farrell

    I was really looking forward to this book, since The Field Museum is one of my favorite places in the world and I dig picture books. Overall, I liked the underlying story and the illustrations were really nice. On the flip side, the “finding things” repetition really slowed down the text and the vocabulary made me wonder who the audience is for this book. I suppose it’d be good for a 3rd-5th grader, but I don’t necessary see students that age picking out picture books off the shelves. (They shou

But I don’t see it happening.)

    is a children's picture book written by Toni Buzzeo and illustrated by Diana Sudyka, which is a biography about Sue Hendrickson, an explorer and fossil collector, who found the biggest and most complete skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

    Susan Hendrickson is an American explorer and fossil collector. Hendrickson is best known for her discovery of the remains of a Tyrannosaurus Rex in South Dakota on August 12, 1990. Her discovery was the largest specimen found and one of the most complete skeletons, which was named after her.

    Buzzeo's text is rather simplistic and straightforward. It details the life of Susan Hendrickson from her shy, but bright childhood to her remarkable discovery of the largest Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton that would one day bear her name. Sudyka's illustrations are warmly detailed art delves into the narrative and depicts the life of Susan Hendrickson rather well.

    The premise of the book is rather straightforward. Sue Hendrickson began her life as a "shy and incredibly smart" girl with an insatiable curiosity about the natural world and a passion for finding lost objects. This interest blossomed into a career as an underwater archaeological excavation diver and paleontologist. To the exciting moment when she, standing alone with her dog, sees a partial backbone in the rock and correctly envisions a Tyrannosaurus Rex that would one day be named after her.

    All in all,

    is a wonderful biographical children's book that depicted one incredible moment in the life Sue Hendrickson.

    Sure to appeal to kids who are into dinosaurs. Talks about discovering dinosaur bones and how they have to be carefully excavated.

    This book is fine, but I wasn't blown away by it.

    I like that child-Sue is a loner, but as a grown-up scientist she works as a member of a team.

    I hadn't realized how widely accomplished Sue Hendrickson is -- it's not clear from the text how all her work fits together (though the text uses the connecting theme of "finding things"), but the Author's Note says, "She has been a professional diver since 1971, a specialist in paleontology fieldwork (especially dinosaurs), a specialist in fossil inclusi

    This book is fine, but I wasn't blown away by it.

    I like that child-Sue is a loner, but as a grown-up scientist she works as a member of a team.

    I hadn't realized how widely accomplished Sue Hendrickson is -- it's not clear from the text how all her work fits together (though the text uses the connecting theme of "finding things"), but the Author's Note says, "She has been a professional diver since 1971, a specialist in paleontology fieldwork (especially dinosaurs), a specialist in fossil inclusion in amber from mines in the Dominican Republic and Mexico, and a long-standing member of the Franck Goddio marine archaeology team."

    The story of how she was drawn to the spot where the T-Rex skeleton was was cool.

    The Author's Note says: "Unfortunately, Sue's great find was followed by a long and bitter dispute among various people who believed they owned Sue: Maurice Williams, the Sioux tribal member who owned the land where Sue was found; the Cheyenne River Sioux tribe on whose reservation Sue was found; the federal government that held the land in trust where Sue was found; and, of course, Peter Larson, whose Black Hills Institute team was responsible for the dig that found Sue. Only Sue Hendrickson didn't believe she owned Sue."

    The book itself doesn't get into that dispute except to say, "After a long dispute about ownership, Sue the T. rex went to auction. And who won the auction? None other than The Field Museum -- the very same museum Sue Hendrickson loved to visit so often as a young girl."
