8yo reviews "The Rock & Gem Book"
I am always on the lookout for great learning resources for my 8-year-old who loves to learn. DK Canada has some of the best resources out there, in my opinion, and The Rock & Gem Book is no exception. The book offers vibrant photographs, an easy-to-use format and reams of information on all things related to rocks and minerals -- including fossils! We had lots of fun exploring this book and I can tell it will have a permanent place on our school/homework reference shelf.
Here's what my 8-year-old had to say in her own words:
I liked this book it is cool. the colours of the gems are so bright.
It was very fun to learn about rocks and gems.
The pink sapphire was my favourite gem.
I give this book a 7 out of ten.
(Trust me, 7/10 is high praise from my tough critic!)
If you are looking to add to your at-home library, this book is definitely worth a look.
