"Sometimes a simple concept can have comprehensive value in a primary classroom. Rocks: Hard, Soft, Smooth, and Rough illustrates such an idea. This well-written book can help primary students learn to classify and observe. This basic introduction to rocks and minerals combines a solid description of the three types of rocks with fun facts, a rock chart, and the Mohs Hardness scale. Great vocabulary and clever illustrations will challenge and delight readers. Rocks can be sparkly, granite can be freckled, sandstone may be dully and gritty. Matthew John’s charming illustrations, paper cutouts, and collages with real images of rocks were produced digitally, providing ideas for art integration too. This is an ideal book to begin a unit on Earth materials. After a class discussion, it could also be used to support an observation station. Using digital photos, students could write and illustrate their own books about the Earth materials around them. They’ll see the rocks and minerals in their environment differently once they’ve shared this book." - NSTA Recommends
