Ever since I grew my first sugar crystal (with my father's help), I have been fascinated by the world of rocks! This book is a fantastic introduction into the world of geology and gemmology.

Thanks to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing for allowing this ARC in exchange for a honest review.

Kids love rocks. Having this book on my shelf will allow me to give quick answers to their questions about the rocks they find everywhere!

The illustrations/graphic designs in this book are colorful and creative! I am drawn to something on each page.

I can just hear the kids who love to tell you what they have learned quot

A really interesting book for all ages, well written, easy to read and understand with great examples and explanations.
Not being familiar with formation of the different stones, except precious stones, this book was excellent and I will be more on the look out on my rambles.
Great book for kids and young adults, well illustrated.

This book would make a great addition to any homeschooling library, teacher's classroom, and parent who knows a little budding geologist - lots of pictures and information on all different types of rocks, gemstones, and fossils!
