Everybody Needs a Rock is a great book for many ages, but I specifically like this book for 2nd grade and learning about the characteristics of rocks are part of the curriculum. Although this book is about finding a Pet Rock, I plan to read this book to the 2nd graders in my home base classroom as a way to create a connection their unit in Science. I have noticed that most children want to keep the rocks they are experimenting with in the classroom, but after this book the class could take a walk outside and find their own rocks or the teacher can buy two bags of decorating rocks for $2.00 to give to the children (which is my plan). I also love the simple line drawings in the illustrations.
