Publishers Weekly - Publishers WeeklyPreS-Gr 1-A little girl discovers that rocks come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, as brilliantly illustrated in this book of opposites. Lacking a traditional story line, the book leads readers on a guided tour of the wonderful world of rocks. The child adds to her collection with each site she visits. Students view natural landscapes as well as human architectural modifications of rocks and stones. The protagonist shows her enthusiasm for each and every type of rock she finds. Pleasingly rendered, full-page watercolors provide vivid images of the girl'ss experiences. This book is recommended for public and elementary school libraries, and will also appeal to young bookstore patrons. Paul M. Kienlen, Alicia R.
