Researching Rocks by Sally M Walker –ADVISABLE

Walker, Sally M Researching Rocks 40 pgs. Lerner Classroom, 2013. $8.95  Content: Language: G (0 swears);  Mature Content: G ;  Violence: G.
This book on rocks presents chapters on Igneous, Sedimentary, and Metamorphic rocks, as well as a chapter on what is a rock and another on the rocky cycle.
I thought this book was interesting and well presented. It is perfect for grades 2-4. The photographs are clear and well-chosen. I think this book will help students to understand rocks better and this is a great book for updating your collection. (Sometimes those science one's can get old looking and unappealing -even if the information is still valid). I really liked the list of websites in the back and can’t wait to explore them.
