Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carollyne Hutter
One of these statements is true: it is so hot deep inside the earth that some rocks melt; most fossils are found in igneous rocks. To find out which one is true, the reader explores the topic of rocks. The book is organized into four chapters: rocks are everywhere, making rocks, reshaping rocks, and rocks and people. It explores such topics as the earth's core, the different types of rocks and how they are formed, air pollution and acid rain, and how people use rocks. There are special sections on understanding geocodes and rocks from outer space. The book closes with a list of true statistics about minerals, a list of books for further information, and a glossary. 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
