This book can be used for third grade to discuss the difference between a rock and a mineral, noticing the physical aspects of them, and using observations to compare the similarities and differences between them. This book can be used for sorting and counting and also discussing fractions.

Recommends it for: Any one with an interest in Geology.
I absolutly love this book. The pictures are fantastic, the written information is clear and informative without being overly wordy. I like to use this book for a quick reference, and I enjoy using the websites that are provided for further reading.

this is a great nonfiction book. it lends itself well for kids to read on their own but not great for a read aloud. it includes a table of contents and index. it has captions and amazing pictures. it really helps kids understand more about rocks.

An excellent and thorough introduction to geology. I hadn't realized rocks and minerals are in so many things and transformed into so many other things! My kids loved this one and we used it to look through several of the rocks that we've collected to begin to identify them.
