Children's Literature - Carollyne Hutter
It is a fun and easy hobby to collect rocks. You can start digging for rocks right in your own backyard. Or you can go to faraway places and look for rocks. Rocks are everywhere. The book goes step by step into the whole world of being a rock hound—a person who collects rocks. Choked full of vibrant photographs, the book cover such topics as how to identify rocks, what equipment you need to dig for them, how to record your collection, and how to store the rocks. A glossary of words that are bolded is included. The book closes with a list of books and websites for further information. There are a number of hands on activities in the book for the reader, such as how to make "sea glass." Teachers or parents can do these activities with children either at school or at home. As part of the "Let's Rock!" series, the book can be used in science and geology units either alone or with other books in the series. Reviewer: Carollyne Hutter
