This is a terrific book that has fascinating information about rocks and minerals. The material in the book discusses how rocks are formed, and what they are made of.

The illustrations are stunning and capture the beauty of rocks and minerals. This book is a great nonfiction text, that can be used for any report or unit study. It is a perfect introduction to Geology.
