This marvelous book tells the story of a single pebble, from its birth inside a volcano and its 480-million-year journey—under the sea, on mountain tops, buried in ice, covered in sand, stomped on by dinosaurs, and so much more.
Children will never look at a rock the same way again! The story of the Earth's history unfolds in a tangible way that will intrigue children to do more research.
The Elementary Montessori teacher who reviewed this book for us wondered if it was written by a Montessorian, because it has many elements of the Great Lessons in it. It wasn't, but it could have been. Time line included. Hardcover, 40 pages. Ages 6 - 12.
