    Collector Josh receives a rock gift from his Uncle, along with the sugestion that he start a collection of rocks. Josh takes his new rock to a rock store owner, Dave, who teaches him about classifying by size, color, type, and even hardness. The book would be an excellent introduction to a 4th grade geology unit, and contains geological fact along with classificaton ideas within its enjoyable plot. The appendix contains activities for kids and adults and suggested reading biblography for additional rock information. An excellent addition to the collection in an elementary library. Recommend it to students 3-6, as well as teachers and parents.
