Have you ever held a beautiful stone and wished to know its story—how it was formed, what it is made of, or why it is shaped and colored that way? Some stones grow in volcanic rock, others in wet caves, and still others are formed through intense heat and pressure over thousands of years! Look at the world of rocks and minerals with new eyes through this fascinating book, packed with stunning photographs and images. Children will learn fun facts, as well as the uses and history of the forty rocks and minerals highlighted, while they discover the secret to classifying and describing each one. Helping children glimpse the majesty of the natural world is one of the main goals at The Good and the Beautiful, and this study guide is a perfect place to start! This book is an optional resource perfect to accompany our Geology science unit.

This book is a suggested read-aloud for The Good and the Beautiful Geology Science Unit Study.
