Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This geology book about the basic properties that make up rocks targets early elementary readers. The eight chapters cover the types of rocks, how rock is harvested and what rock is used for. Two page chapters with large print and colorful photographs with some captions give basic information to the reader about rocks. Instructions to make a sedimentary block project are also included. There is a helpful index, glossary, and further reading booklist which helps young readers see and use elements of nonfiction texts. Additionally, the publisher includes a simple, uncluttered, reviewed search engine to find out more information on the topic. This is part of the "First Facts Materials" series. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 5 to 8.
