"Will definitely engage reluctant readers as well as those who love to read."
I love the concept; some kids around here are absolutely fascinated with gemstones, and I think it's great that you introduce the benefits of gemstones and crystals. The layout of the book is super eye catching and will definitely engage reluctant readers as well as those who love to read. With that said, the Uxbridge Public Library would love to have your book as a part of our collection. I will include it in next month's Ingram order.

"We loved the book and especially the rock samples."
We loved the book and especially the rock samples. The samples really helped make the story and lessons tangible. The way the story blends emotional/developmental challenges/adventures that any child can relate to with the healing powers of the rocks and the geological facts of the rocks was so refreshing and appealing to my daughter. Even at 11, children learn best through story and adventure, not lists of facts and not scientific writing. The fact that she also has beagle made it all the more appealing.
