Product Description

This absolutely stunning picture book will introduce young readers to the wonders of rocks. From the bright blues of an azurite geode to the molten liveliness of obsidian, readers will not only gain an appreciation for the beauty and fascination of what rocks look like, but also learn how they're formed and used. Discover how rocks help animals, how people have used rocks historically & today, what stunning creations humankind has formed from rocks, and other interesting cultural notes. Clear, elegant text also explains the rock cycle, introducing children to sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous rocks. 11.25" x 9.5". Hardcover with dust jacket.

Please Note: This book teaches "billions of years" and espouses an evolutionary worldview ("The oldest known rocks on Earth were formed billions of years before the sky turned from green to blue, before dinosaurs thundered across the earth, before humans learned how to make fire").
