From the backyard to the local bank, rock hounds can identify common rocks wherever they go with this rocking illustrated guide.
"A Great First Book" according to apoem. This is not the be all, end all of rock books and rock identification books. This is a great introduction to rocks and rock hounding. It explains the different types of rocks. The pictures are clear and enhance the text and make this book a nice book for first time explorers or young rock hunters.. A good beginning rock book This is an excellent beginning book on the basics of rocks. It describes the different kinds of rocks, tells how they are formed, and gives descriptions of various rocks. The back contains a section for "field notes" where a young collector can keep a record of rocks collected. I read this to my five year old granddaughter and she enjoyed it very much and we both learned a lot. It would be appropriate for an older child also. Good science presently in a clear manner.. "Good simple read" according to deborah hayes. Got this for my 8 yr old grandsons birthday along with a rock kit and he love it.
