i>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.
