The Lovereading4Kids comment

An essential tool particularly for those kids who find science boring rather than explosive. Designed to make learning easier and a whole lot more fun, this fact-filled book will show you rocks, minerals and fossils as you’ve never seen them before. Flint for example is a sedimentary yet stylish rock, whilst marble has the looks and is waxy and clear. The comic personality of each is a useful and easy way to discover some key characteristics. A small format pocket-sized book, it comes complete with a poster that is itself an almost one stop guide for 11+ year olds to know what they need to know about rocks and minerals.

Synopsis

Rocks and Minerals: A gem of a read! by Dan Green, Simon Basher

Discover the secrets of geology, from intricate fossilized plants and animals through to a great variety of minerals and crystals; unlock the mysteries of the ground beneath our feet, from how rocks are formed to how meteorites crash to Earth. Rocks and Minerals is a compelling guide to a community of characters who come together to create the foundations of our planet.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
