What I like love about this book: Laura's lyrical writing. The wonderful examples of what a rock can be. The invitation to go out and see for ourselves, to discover what else a rock can be. [Plus a few classroom suggestions at https://archimedesnotebook.blogspot.com/2015/05/a-rock-can-be.html]
One of the best parts of the book is the section in the back called "More about rocks". In this section the author shares more information about each type of rock presented in the book. Did you know there is a colony of more then thirty-five thousand parrots nesting in a five mile stretch of cliffs in Argentina?!
This book is a gift from Laura Purdie Salas and Violeta Dabija to us. Now we need to pass it on to others as often as we can.
