Flint is a rock that sparks. Pumice is a rock that floats. And a geode looks plain on the outside, but inside it’s full of sparkling crystals. These and other unusual rocks are explored through simple text and colorful photos in this enticing volume. The book begins by covering “Words to Know,” complete with pronunciation guides, and an introduction that eases readers into the text. Each featured rock is displayed and discussed on a single spread, and a reading list, Web site list, and index round out the back matter.
