    Like the other wonderful books by these collaborators, this introduction to rocks and minerals features beautiful, lavish illustrations and great information.

    Absolutely beautiful illustrations. A great book for a child with an interest in geology!

    We really love this series, the pictures are beautiful, but I was not thrilled with this title. Parents who would prefer that their children not be exposed to nudity (including "artistic") be warned that this book contains a picture of Michelangelo's David.

    Sigh. This book is so beautiful and has a simple main text with additional information on each spread, making it a great choice to share with kids. It includes interesting facts, giving young readers a basic overview of geology and how rocks are used by people and animals. However, there are no sources cited, which breaks my heart. :(

    If you want Astonishingly Amazingly Beautiful in a children's book, look no further than the writing/illustrating team of Dianna Hutts Aston and Sylvia Long. A Rock is Lively is Aston and Long's fourth joint effort following the success of An Egg is Quiet, A Seed is Sleepy, and A Butterfly is Patient. I knew this would be a lovely book, but I'd almost despaired of obtaining a copy in time to evaluate it for the Cybils when my librarian friend surprised me with the book last week. I hope you'll forgive me for loving this book best of the series as my husband is a longtime rockhound and gem cutter. I've seen a lot of beautiful rocks and a lot of beautiful rock books, but I must say that I've never seen more beautiful rocks in a more beautiful rock book. And not only is it beautiful, but it explains rocks better than any other rock book for children that I've read.Fabulous. It will not disappoint.
