Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This attractive introduction to geology, an entry in the Ultimate Explorer Field Guide series offers a wealth of facts and color photos of elemental formations, gem stones, fossils, and other rock types, as well as guidance for amateur rock hunters. Well ordered and including information both familiar to the target audience, such as birthstone traditions, and more advanced, such as the periodic table, it can be variably used. A panoply of information such as the origin of stone names, different rock structures, and specific geology terms is presented clearly in both the text and accompanying images. Besides for browsing, kids and adults may want to use this as a field guide when exploring rocky environments. A useful supplement for elementary and middle-school science curricula, the book includes a well-considered glossary and further resources.--Goldsmith, Francisca Copyright 2016 Booklist"
