    This book is a playful but education introductions to rocks and their properties and life cycle. A good example of text features including headings, tables, illustrations, and labels: this book touches on igneous rocks, sedimentary rocks, metamorphic rocks, and Mo's scale of hardness. Despite the third-grade reading level, my first-graders got some key ideas out of this book when we used it as a read aloud to open our rock unit in science.Reading Level: 3.7

    This is a beginners book on rocks and how they are formed, but it is not as much about rock collecting as I think the children would expect. It discusses the 3 types of rocks and how some are converted from one type to another. It also explains the Moh's scale. The beginning readers did not have a good frame of reference though. Consider using this when introducing rocks in science class with examples.

    I thought this was a very informational text for students. However, it was not boring. The writer made it fun for students to follow. The illustrations demonstrated what the text was talking about. I would love to have this book in my classroom.

    My son used this book for his Second Grade Science class. The text contains some solid information, and it is accessible to a second-grader; however, this book did not prove to be nearly as helpful as I hoped. I think the problem is with the illustrations. The illustrations, even of the rocks, are a bit cartoonish, which made it difficult for my son to match up his rock sample to the correct rock.

    I read this book for my college class as an informational science book. This book is perfect when it comes to talking about rocks and what we do with them. It is a great book for getting kids excited about a great science topic.

    I saw the older version of this book. It appears that the newer version may have solved my major complaint, and that is that the pictures/photos need to be in color. Actually for a rock collecting book I think it needs to be photos, unless the illustrations are done in a photographic manner.The information was good, but we really needed better pictures. I'll have to check out the revision.

    this is a great book for introducing geology. it makes it simple for people to understand a somewhat complex concept while relating it to a fun activity kids usually participate in any way - rock collecting. I love this book. I actually learned new things and got a better understanding of the geological makeup of the world.

    If you've ever appreciated the beauty of a rock, this book will help you learn the basics of geology and aide you in identifying different types of rocks in your collection. Lots of great charts are included as well as photos of different examples. This nonfiction title is simple enough it could be read aloud to early elementary school classes. Recommended for grades 2-4.

    This is one of the Reading Rainbow title about geology. This book could be used as an integrated science lesson with geology with students learning about sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous rocks are formed. for science and the places the rock hounds go as geography for social studies.

    A book that gives information on rock-collecting. This book goes into how rocks are formed, how you can find one, and what types of rocks there are.I loved the information and illustrations in this book.

    In third grade learning about rocks and minerals is also a big topic. Hence, this is a great non-fiction book to introduce students to the the general facts about rocks and minerals. This book might even inspire students to start a collection of rocks.
