Each page introduces a different rock, mineral, gem stone or metal to the young readers.

The science teacher in me is cringing at the incorrect geological classifications. These kids aren't too young to learn the difference between metals, gem stones, minerals, and such. It's just creating misconceptions that have to be unlearned later. But obviously, that wasn't the point of the book. I liked the presentation beyond that. Just wish they had a science consultant.
