I see that a lot of people gave this book 5 stars. I'm not sure I get it, but I think I could use the book in a language arts lesson to learn about rules and descriptions or to do some creative writing about an object.

Given to my children by their rock loving grandma, this book helps to begin the love of rocks in a child's heart.

Great text, but the illustrations are... interesting.The text is very written-by-a-kid, run-on sentences in all their artistic glory. In *this* case, it's a good thing and you won't hear a complaint by me as our unnamed narrator tells us all her rules about picking a rock. And who can't remember being a kid with a rock in their pocket? I can remember it.But the artwork... I don't know, I just don't know. It's unique, I guess.

I enjoyed this book so much; I read it before I reached the cash register. I can¿t wait to put the ten rules for selecting a rock into practice. I have selected rocks before, but this is the first time I have had a guide to help me find the perfect one.

If you are teaching text structure to students, this one is great! It shows the process involved in selecting the perfect rock. Kids absolutely love it! So if teaching kids about sequence and process text structures this one is perfect.
