Read full description of the books:
Well, this is a wonderful nostalgic book for adults who collected rocks when they were kids; I’m one of them. And, some kids who enjoy the natural world might appreciate it because it stresses their autonomy in the pursuit of choosing a rock of their very own. I also like how the girl stresses play with her rock can be more fun than playing with the kinds of things that have to be purchased. (Although I do remember buying some rocks and well as finding rocks.)
The pictures are highly unusual and I really enjoyed them. They’re all in tans, blacks, whites, and the style is so interesting, and I particularly liked the pictures within other pictures.
The instructions the girl gives, even though she gives some leeway to the reader, I find both appealing and unappealing. Some of what she says is just lovely, but the idea of giving specific instructions for this activity, an activity that’s joyful, in part, because everybody has a different way of doing it and different things of importance about it and about their rock(s), well, that part didn’t work for me that well.
