Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Playful and interactive, this picture-book title in the Jump into Science series makes geology accessible with colorful diagrams, photos, and computer graphics. The spreads discuss how the three main types of rock are formed, as well as facts about fossils and the more than 2,500 different minerals on the planet. The visuals will capture kids, from the photo of lava pouring out of a volcano to paintings of the pyramids and a photo of Stonehenge in a section about how rocks are used. The back matter has a great recipe for making a rock from glue, sand, and pebbles. Grades 1-3. --Hazel Rochman
