Brenda DeHaanabout this book: Kids love rocks. Kids really love colorful rocks. (So does the author!)
"Crystals for Kids: Learn the Names of 17 Rocks and Minerals" shows young children colorful photographs of rocks and minerals. One page has the stone's name and photo; the accompanying page displays the rocks in creative scenes to stimulate the imagination. These scenes also boost the memory of which rock is which.
This book focuses on the unique displays of rocks and minerals and has very few words. The author is a school librarian and grandma of preschoolers. She knows how sometimes the best learning is through memorable pictures, especially when the pictures start conversations.
The 17 rocks featured in the book are agate, amethyst, aquamarine, blue lace agate, calcite, carnelian, citrine, clear quartz, green aventurine, lapis lazuli, petrified wood, pyrite, red jasper, rose quartz, smokey quartz, sodalite, and tiger's eye. Children will learn earth science in a creative way.
"Crystals for Kids" is available in paperback and as a Kindle e-book. Color is a large part of rock identification; using a Kindle/app with color capabilities is highly recommended for reading the digital version.
