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.
