Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Who knew rocks had so many interesting and diverse uses? After reading this short book in the "Yellow Umbrella Books" series, students and adults alike will have a whole new appreciation for rocks. To introduce this book and create a class-wide discussion, teachers might ask students to list all the places rocks can be found and how many uses they can think of for these simple, unassuming objects. Next this book could be read aloud or in turns by students to see if they have missed anything. As the text and accompanying pictures point out, rocks can be found everywhere—in the park, in rivers and lakes, covering the earth in the form of mountains, and the beach in the form of sand. Rocks tell us about the history of the earth as well: old stream beds tell us where rivers used to run, and fossils let us know where and when ancient plants and animals used to live. The amazing forces of time can be seen as well from the photographs of rocks shaped by wind, rain, ice, heat, and cold. Finally, the book describes several uses for rocks: walls, streets, houses, sculptures, jewelry, chalk, and chalkboards. Back matter includes a combined glossary and an index. This book is ideally suited for an introductory lesson about geography or science. 2004, Capstone Press, Ages 4 to 7.
