Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - RevaBeth Russell
Surrounding the ammonite fossil photograph, the contents of the book are listed. Rocks are described: some rocks come from the molten earth's magma while some rocks are secondhand, meaning they are sedimentary rocks from the sand, mud, or pebbles of previous rocks. There are different types of sedimentary rocks and each gets it moment of fame. Some rocks change, such as marble, slate and schist. These are the metamorphic rocks. There are rocks that come from space such as meteorites. Rocks form the base of many industries. Rocks are found in art, buildings, pottery and even laundry detergent. Fossils are also perfectly described for this age range along with awesome photographs. The reader will have learned a great deal after reading this book. There is a parent/teacher section with science, math, literature, and writing links and activities. There is a two page spread at end of the book with more photos, factoids and web links.
