This homage to rock collecting, assembled by “rock artist” Linda Kranz, celebrates rocks in all their variety, shapes, and colors. Some even resemble pieces of modern art. Others offer a glimpse into the natural beauty that surrounds us. There are rocks that are rough to the touch, and others that are as smooth as glass. There are rocks inside rocks. You can even find rocks that are shaped like a heart. There are even rocks that cling to a magnet! This book will explain how to start a rock collection, and what you might do with them, such as identifying what kind of rocks they are or even painting on them or creating scenes with their shapes. The book also advises you where NOT to collect rocks, such as certain parks and natural areas. Regardless, this book will inspire the rock hound in all of us.
