If You Find A Rock

If You Find a Rock
By Peggy Christian, photographs by Barbara Hirsch Lember

Poetic celebration of rocks, pebbles, stones, and boulders. Explores the many ways kids use rocks — from skipping to climbing to making a wish — and where they can best be found. Artfully designed with hand-tinted, black-and-white photographs. Teaches exploration, observation, and appreciation.  Ideal for young geologists and creative, outdoorsy kids.
