Top Customer Reviews
>Book is very thin
>Not set up in a way that would inform your child on a certain rock/gem that they have - I was expecting this book to be sort of a guide. Pictures of certain rocks or minerals, their origins, how they are mined, chemical composition, etc. It is more of a collage of information, bursting with images and text boxes scattered through out the pages.
>Feels unorganized - Again, with the scrapbook-like pages of texts and images it feels more like a "fun facts" rather than "educational."
>Kind of a read, but then probably never read again book. I was expecting something more reference like so that you would constantly be using it to identify a new stone.
>Book is full of colorful images, and does give kids some information about the "how and where" minerals are made and come from.
>A safe choice if you are considering it as a gift for another child! Can't go wrong with anything science based, and this book is pretty neat, despite my misunderstanding of it.
To sum up - the book is okay. Not what I expected, but maybe it's what YOU are looking for. If you're looking for a reference guide, this is NOT it. If you're looking for broad and general information on this topic, this may be a good choice.
