I bought this book when I was student-teaching in a third grade classroom. This was quite an academically diverse group of students, five of whom had various special needs. The explanation and illustrations of the rock cycle in the BOCES kit (student book) was lacking to say the least. I read this book aloud to the class and the kids loved it! It illustrates the rock cycle from the point of view of a piece of carbon that eventually becomes a diamond. This book makes a great introduction to studying the rock cycle or could be used as supplemental material at a reading center. (I love to use an interdisciplinary approach when teaching a unit like this!) You could even have advanced students make it into a little play and act out the story for their peers. Another bonus for me, my 5-year-old son loves this book as much as the 8- and 9-year-old 3rd graders did! So it has been a great investment!

I had the pleasure of reading this story to a class of second graders while they were studying the "rock cycle". They loved it!

Great book for kids who are curious about rocks. The pictures are good and help explain the science even if the words are too advanced for younger kids.

Book was in great condition when it arrived; and very prompt. It was also very useful for my classroom! I think I will use it for years to come to explain the rock cycle to my 3rd graders.
