Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carollyne Hutter
One of these statements is true: most of Earth's minerals are very common; gold is used in making computers. To find out which one is true, the reader explores the topic of minerals. The book is organized into four chapters: understanding minerals, out of the earth, identify minerals, and minerals in our lives. It explores such topics how minerals are formed, how to identity minerals, the Mohs scale (which measures the hardness of minerals), how geologists find minerals, how minerals are used in everyday life, and more. There are especial sections on good versus fool's good and on the Gold Rush. Glossy colorful photographs capture the beauty of gemstones and crystals. The book closes with a list of true statistics about minerals and a list of books for further information. At the end of the book it tells which opening statement is true. As part of the "A True Book" series this title can be used in science and geology units either alone or with other geology books in the series. Reviewer: Carollyne Hutter
