Summary
Learn about different types of rock, how crystals are formed, where gems can be found in the earth's crust, and more. Engaging text, detailed facts, and impressive statistics give children exciting scientific insight into the rocks, crystals, and gems...and the world around them. A glossary at the end of the book helps reinforce the information. Parents, teachers, and librarians will want to collect all of the books in this series to create a very cool first encyclopedia to build early research skills.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Big, colorful, and full of attractive pictures, each book in the Visual Explorers series presents a broad subject in a series of topical, double-page spreads. Typically, these include a one-paragraph introduction, five or more captioned photos, and several boxes or circles offering related facts. Scattered words in the introductory paragraph are printed in bold type, apparently for emphasis, as most are not defined in the appended glossary. Though no sources are cited, each clearly written text offers brief general overviews of topics, along with relevant, specific facts. Rocks, Crystals, and Gems examines different rock types, explains how they form, and offers examples of crystals used in technologies such as solar cells, semiconductors, and microchips. The quality of the paper allows for excellent reproduction of the many illustrations. Inexpensive and relatively sturdy, these large-format paperbacks make for a visually enticing series.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2016 Booklist"
