Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Budding and future geologists will find much to interest them in this vibrant picture book about some of the many kinds of rocks that can be found in nature. Each double-page spread pairs two kinds of rocks that share similarities, such as color, but also have their own unique qualities that are described in fun, rhyming text. Large photographs of brilliantly colored rocks appear even clearer placed on a black background and, when paired with the clear, white text, make each page enjoyable for young readers to read alone or together--and definitely more than once. A section focusing on questions about rocks and minerals accompanies the text and informs readers about the formation of rocks, going into further detail about their colors and textures. Enchanting colors, eye-catching photographs, and lively, descriptive text come together to introduce the youngest readers to rocks, how they are formed, and the amazing varieties that can be found in the world."
