I'll probably write to this person myself to give her contact
information for specific individuals, but if any of you would like to
help in the project described below, please write to Ms. Markle

Subject: Please Help

Dear Dr. Rowe:

I'm the author of 60 science books for children.  I'm currently working on
Outside and Inside Dinosaurs which will use only real photographs to help
children learn about how scientists infer things about dinosaurs and what
scientists believe about the way dinosaurs lived and functioned.  Outside
and Inside Dinosaurs will be the 14th book in my Outside and Inside series
for Simon & Schuster. I'm pleased to share that every book in this series
has won at least one award and many have won as many as three.

Below is a list of the images I'm trying to locate to illustrate Outside
and Inside Dinosaurs.  Thank you in advance for any help you can provide
toward making Outside and Inside Dinosaurs a valuable learning experience
for young readers. 

Please let me know what you might be able to supply or can you suggest who
might have such images?
