Book

First edition.

The Go! Field Guide: Rocks and Minerals kicks off Scholastic's definitive new field guide series. With 160 pages of color photos and facts, and a durable format that's ready to take out into the world, these field guides will get kids off their screens and exploring outside. Rocks and Minerals helps young researchers get started by learning the tools of the trade and setting expectations. There probably isn't going to be gold lying around in your backyard or local park, but there may be other cool rock samples that only you can find in your part of the world. The book will guide readers toward samples they may find in North America and help them identify what to look for in rocks and gems, like color, luster, hardness, and light, with a host of tests to figure out which sample they've uncovered. Rounding out the guide are four rock samples to start you off, and information on how to maintain and show off your awesome new rock collection!-- Amazon.
