Childrens Books 
Illustrated by David Cobb

The series of children’s books on fossils and geologic time was illustrated by David Cobb. We were very fortunate to find him. His attention to detail and willingness to research the subject matter gives his drawings a realistic look. At the same time David’s drawings had the childlike quality we were looking for. Each creature from the distant past seems to have a personality of its own.

We have had comments from other teachers that children using our books have been inspired to draw their own extinct animals because of David’s drawings.

We are so happy with David’s work that we are in the process of compiling a children’s coloring book from his many drawings that fill the pages of our books.See samples of David's work
