That’s all it took & she became a rock hound.
In a dragon’s den Scavenger Scout found a spiky blue azurite.
1 of the dragons thought she was after his gold.
Scavenger Scout dove into the sea to find fluorite.
The mermaids said the pearls were off limits.
What would Scavenger Scout find on the moon?

This book reminded me of my mom. She too loved rocks and loved to travel so every state etc. she visited she brought back a rock. She and my dad traveled a lot so she had a large collection. I have a few of the rocks in my yard.

The one minor downside I'd mention (and I'm not the only reviewer who mentions this) is that the text is super small and a little difficult to read.

Was disappointed the author felt the need to add dragons, mermaids, aliens... to a book that could have been even better (in my humble opinion) if the little girl was hunting, gathering, collecting while traveling with her family or school or something REAL. Something to spark kids imaginations and make them want to and realize they too can really collect. But this??? Outer space with aliens? Deep sea with mermaids?
First of all, the illustrations were gorgeous! I also like the imaginative adventure- it's not about just looking for rocks, but looking for rock among dragons, mermaids, and aliens. I also like how the girl cared more about the rocks than the gold or the pearls- a great reminder about value and beauty.
Despite that, the beauty of rocks and their origins, sense of environmental preservation as well as rule of exchange in life can be learned by children of younger ages.
