My Book of Rocks and Minerals



Things to find, collect and treasure!

A perfect first book for any child interested in starting their own rock and mineral collection, this is a fantastic introduction to the world of rocks, gems, and minerals.

Children will learn all about where rocks and minerals come from, what a fossil is, and how they can go about starting their own rock collection, as well as how to identify any rocks they find. From amethyst to sandstone, common rocks and minerals are shown alongside fun facts and simple bite-sized chunks of information. A "Which mineral have you got?" section allows children to find and match rocks and gems in their collection to those in the book.

With over 40 key rocks and minerals to discover, My Book of Rocks and Minerals is an absolute must-have for budding geologists aged 5 and up.
