An easy book for young children who may relate many aspects of the world to themselves. Creative yet simple. About a boy who tries to find the right rock for him through many different experiences. Personalized for young children with great illustrations. A book that exemplifies how little things can still have great meaning. It demonstrates the "bigger" picture for children. I like this book because it represents the importance of the little things we encounter throughout life- even if it is, just a rock. ( )

In this book, the narrator gives us 10 rules for finding a rock. Not just any rock but a rock one can keep forever. The book uses simple language but paints a beautiful story.The illustrations are simple in colour but beautifully created. Every time I look at the illustrations I notice something I've missed before. This is a great picture book for kids and adults who love collecting rocks. ( )

This is one of my favorite books. I think it captures a childhood fascination with rocks using both authentic but sophisticated descriptive language. The illustrations are beautiful and reveal the perspective of the narrator, a girl explaining her relationship with rocks. I have used this book in an upper elementary setting to discuss how poets challenge traditional writing rules with their choices in structure and spelling. I would wholeheartedly recommend it to teachers, students, and readers of all ages. ( )
