From the creators of the award-winning An Egg Is Quiet, A Seed Is Sleepy, A Butterfly Is Patient, and A Nest Is Noisy comes this gorgeous and informative introduction to the fascinating world of rocks.  From dazzling blue Lapis Lazuli to volcanic Snowflake Obsidian, an incredible variety of rocks are showcased in all their splendor.  Poetic in voice and elegant in design, this book introduces an array of facts, making it equally perfect for classroom sharing and family reading.

Recommended by the publisher for ages 5-8 years; however, recommended by 'Nest' family for 8 years and up.  A great amount of history and detail!  Especially great for Grade 6 Geology Unit in Waldorf pedagogy.
