Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carollyne Hutter
There are rocks everywhere on Earth. The book is a basic look at rocks and geology. It explores the three types of rocks, rock words, minerals, rock formation, the rock cycle, gemstones, being a geologist, and other topics. Colorful photographs and illustrations bring the ideas to life and will appeal to children. The photographs and charts complement the text well. The language used in the book is simple and easy for readers of all ages to understand. The book ends with a fun quiz and a science activity on how to make your own rock. A code is given in the book, which can be used on the website to access video clips, audio readings of the book, a slide show, quizzes, and other activities. The book can be used in science and geology units and in celebration of Earth Day. The information is organized in a way that works well for children creating reports or presentations. The book can be used alone or with another book in the series, "The Rock Cycle." Reviewer: Carollyne Hutter
