Everybody Needs A Rock

Everybody Needs a Rock
By Byrd Baylor, illustrated by Peter Parnall

A multitude of deep, deceptively simple themes are promoted in this handbook for junior geologists. The story presents 10 rules for finding and keeping a special rock that'll teach your child the power of observing nature, mindfulness, antimaterialism, aesthetics, and individuality. It's a book not just for young rock hounds, but for everyone.
