Rock Collecting for Kids: An Introduction to Geology (Simple Introductions to Science)

Rock collecting is for everyone!

Nature’s treasures are just beneath our feet, waiting to be discovered. With this book, you’ll experience the excitement of finding, collecting, and identifying rocks and minerals.

Dan R. Lynch, author of many field guides, presents a children’s introduction to our amazing Earth. The book begins with geology basics, such as where rocks come from and how Earth’s surface changes over time. Next, young readers are provided with an identification guide, which features full-color photographs and ID tips on 75 types of common and collectible rocks and minerals. From there, a “how to” section includes details on what to look for, where to look, and what to bring, as well as safety considerations.

With rock collecting guidelines that the whole family will learn from and enjoy, this fun guide is engaging and informative―with plenty of kid-appeal―as it starts children on the path toward becoming successful rock collectors!
