Rocks, Crystals and Gems (Visual Explorers)
The books in this Visual Explorers series feature page after page of dramatic, full-color photographs. Learn about different types of rock, how crystals are formed, where gems can be found in the earth's crust, and more. Engaging text, detailed facts, and impressive statistics give children exciting scientific insight into the rocks, crystals, and gems and the world around them. A glossary at the end of each book helps reinforce the information. Parents, teachers, and librarians will want to collect all of the books in this series to create a very cool first encyclopedia to build early research skills. (Ages 8 and up)
Even little ones will enjoy looking at the photographs found in this series. Although the content is intended for elementary children, the pictures are stunning and will appeal to all ages.
Each 32-page book has beautiful photography on every page, along with interesting facts and statistics. Each topic is given a two-page spread, very much like the format of the DK or Usborne books. A glossary is at the back of the book for those newer, unfamiliar words.
Use the series as a resource for research, supplementation of your curriculum, or just to pique your learner interest. Add this affordable series to your home library for many years' use. ~ Donna
