Booklist - Julia Smith

"From a young age, many kids are fascinated by fossils and rocks, and the books in the Rock On! series are designed to give them a taste of the science behind the trilobite or geode in their hands. Using accessible language, the books introduce key concepts, terminologies, and formation processes, along with “Rock Solid” fact boxes and high-quality, color illustrations. . . .the books’ inviting layout and broad scope will inspire curious youngsters to seek out more-thorough resources." - Booklist
