A Rock is Lively by Dianna Hutts Aston (Preschool)
If you’ve ever had to check your toddler or preschooler’s pockets for “treasures” found at the park, this book may be of interest. While some may say that rocks are boring because they sit around a do nothing, this book shows us that rocks can have a character or spirit of their own. This book is jam-packed with interesting facts about how rocks are formed, their uses, history, and terminology. ▸ Get it at the Library
