If You Find A Rock

We have been spending a great deal of our time together at the carpet talking about rocks. We've wondered why rocks have holes and why rocks are different sizes and shapes. "How do animals find rocks when they are under the ground?", asks Isaac. We know rocks are hard and rocks are heavy. Well the big rocks are heavier than the small rocks. But some big rocks aren't too heavy! We wonder where the rocks come from and how they get cracked.

So much wonder! When we talked about rocks and wrote about rocks and read about rocks, we discovered so many things! Ask your children how rocks are formed. Ask your children about molten lava. Ask your children about chalk rocks and wishing rocks and rocks that lead you home. 

It all started with a little girl, a book sale...and a funky rock book!
