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.

Perfect for the gemstone and rock lover in your life. My daughter is already half through with her book. Arrived with a tear in the front cover, though. But overall, great buy.Published 26 days ago by Amazon Customer
We borrowed this book from the library and we checked it out twice and decided we had to have it! I wish it had been hardcover but that version is way too expensive. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Malia
