Children's Literature - Julia BeikerFuture geologists learn all kinds of strange but true facts about igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks including how lemon juice can be used to determine whether a rock is marble or what you find when you crack open a geode. The simple but descriptive text gives readers the opportunity to explore the complex world of rocks in their terms, while colorful photographs of rocks in their natural settings and detailed illustrations complete the picture. My favorite feature of this book is the glossary, which appears at the beginning of the book so that readers are introduced to challenging vocabulary first; seeing the words again in boldface print in the text reinforces them. Two pages list additional resources, inviting readers to follow up on rocks by checking out other books and relevant websites. This book belongs in any home or school library where science is a priority. This book is part of the "Weird But True Science" series. Reviewer: Julia Beiker
