Brilliant in its concept. So brilliant that I wish I had thought of it!

Taking completely unaltered rocks the author personally found, we are given a simple, yet totally cool alphabet book. The rocks are each in the shape of a letter of the alphabet, as is whatever the letter is standing for. We have "b is for bear," "q is for question mark," "i is for igloo," and my favorite "g is for ghosts."

At the end, readers are given a neat explanation of how McGuirk came about the idea of this book and how the collection even came to be. I was so glad to see these tidbits included, because I was definitely wondering as I flipped through the pages.

This one is great for kids AND parents. Visually stimulating and a lot of it just may spawn some ideas for kids starting their own cool collection.
