Simon Basher is back with another zany primer to science! Following his 3 successful titles on the basics of chemistry, physics, and biology, BASHER SCIENCE: ROCKS AND MINERALS is an in-depth look at the ground beneath our feet. Like his other titles, Basher presents these topics through charming and adorable illustrations and pairs them with basic information told from a first person perspective. He develops a community of characters based on the things that form the foundations of our planet: rocks, gems, crystals, fossils and more. And what's more, he makes it understandable, interesting, and cute. It's not what you expect out of a science primer.

I used this for my preschoolers to learn about rocks and they loved the cartoon illustrations. There is even a poster in the back! This has tons of info and would be good with many age groups. The only complaint I can think of for older kids would be that there are no actual pictures of the rocks and minerals. But this complaint is actually one of the selling points for the age group I was working with which was 3-5.

Another outstanding entry in this series. Bright illustrations and engaging text make this a great way to introduce children to geology.
