How can a rock be lively when it isn’t alive? In the book, A Rock is Lively, beautiful illustrations make gems, geodes, and more come to life! There are lots of mysterious scientific and historical facts in the book that feels like a private journal, not a run-of-the-mill field guide.
In the same way, the book These Rocks Count invites children to join in thefun as Ms. Tate’s class goes on a hike and the children soon realize rocks are far from boring. The journey shows them how rocks impact our lives in ways we may not realize – such as table salt, toothpaste, and smart phones, too!
