Review, The Wall Street Journal, June 11, 2011
"There is as much wit here as there is potential pedagogy: The rock that is used to show "O is for ouch!" looks as though it is shouting and wincing at the same time; the slab of "toast" used to illustrate the letter T so nearly resembles whole-grain bread that you can imagine yourself biting into it."
Review, School Library Journal, May 1, 2011
"Sure to spark imaginative rock-finding hunts and found-object art projects, this quirky title will earn its place in any picture-book collection."
Review, Booklist, May 1, 2011
"With clean page design, restrained use of color, and minimal text, this intriguing book showcases the rocks themselves and may inspire children to discover their own found art."
Review, Kirkus Reviews, April 15, 2011:
"Begs to be pored over again and again."
Review, Publisher's Weekly, March 14, 2011:
"It's an unusual labor of love that may have kids checking the ground for familiar shapes."

We live near Lake Michigan and spend a lot of time collecting very similar looking stones. I bought this book for my four children, ages 7 and under, so they could be inspired in their own rock collecting and so that I could display it in my youngest son's lake/beach-theamed nursery.
This book is beautifully done, and I would highly recommend.
