Summary

If you have ever day-dreamed about discovering a lost city that no one ever knew existed, or finding a set of ancient footprints and trying to solve the mystery of who (or what) left them, then this is the book for you. When Beauregard the cat digs up a bag full of ancient artifacts stolen by the evil Dastardly Looter, it's up to him and his friends Barnaby, Bridget, and Babette to return them to their proper places before they are cuaght by the sinister thief. Hop aboard their time machine and visit ancient worlds, mysterious ruins, and famous archaeological digs. Not only is Archaeology Smart Junior an exciting story, it also tells how archaeologists find and study the clues that tell us all about prehistoric eras. You'll be getting a head start on the science courses you'll take in high school by learning how scientists think and work as they solve the puzzles of the past.

Lexile Measure



Please note that the Lexile measures for a small population of books have been recently updated. Enhancements were made to more precisely measure materials read in K-2 classrooms. Although the vast majority of books that have Lexile measures did not change, a small subset of books required updated Lexile measures.

Many products and services offer Lexile measures for their books and reading materials. We are working with the hundreds of companies that partner with us to transition them to the more precise Lexile measures. For more information on these enhancements and matching beginning readers with texts, visit lexile.com/beginning-readers.
