What can you do with a rock?
You can skip them.
You can sort them.
Best of all, you can share them.
Rocks are simple, but the things you can do with them are endless. Rocks can build, sparkle, and tell a story. They can be memories. They can even be a little bit magic! Some aren't meant for you to take with you; they have to stay where they are, for others to admire after you. And some are perfect for taking with you... and sharing with other people who love rocks too.
This ode to curiosity and creative play from New York Times bestselling author Pat Zietlow Miller and acclaimed illustrator Katie Kath is bound to inspire. The blue-haired, outdoors-loving narrator has an infectious love of rocks and other things that most people miss. It's sure to give kids a new appreciation for the stones under their feet... and for the power of creativity, exploration, and friendship.
"As watercolor illustrations celebrate the child’s passion — showing rocks in piles, boxes, and natural settings — text reveals that a rock can be kicked, skipped, dropped, sorted, studied, and even used as a currency of connection, among other autonomy-building options ('Should your tiny white rock go with other tiny rocks? With other white rocks?... Only you can decide').... This is a lively, emotionally resonant celebration of rocks as well as humans’ ways of connecting with and learning about the natural world." — Publishers Weekly
