A Chip Off the Old Block by Jody Jensen Shaffer - ADVISABLE

Shaffer, Jody Jensen A Chip Off the Old Block Illustrated by Daniel Miyares PICTURE BOOK Nancy Paulsen Books (Penguin), 2018. $18. Content: G.  

Rocky is a cute little rock who wants to be important like a lot of his rock star relatives.  He travels around the world to visit his family in an attempt to find an important role, but while traveling parts of his rock breaks off.  When he gets to Mount Rushmore and hears that President Lincoln’s nose has a crack in it, he decides that’s where he is needed and fills the crack.  

The illustrations in this book are adorable.  Rocky is cute and the quick introduction to major rock formations around the world is fun.  At the back of the book, there is a list of all the rock formations from the book and some facts about rocks.
