NEW Kids Picture Books: Day 11

A Rock Can Be... by Laura Purdie Salas. March 2015.

From Amazon: "Rocks may seem like boring, static objects—until you discover that a rock can spark a fire, glow in the dark, and provide shelters of all shapes and sizes. Laura Purdie Salas's lyrical rhyming text and Violeta Dabija's glowing illustrations show how rocks decorate and strengthen the world around them."

My thoughts: Last year during write31days I reviewed this author's book about water, and used it in a storytime. I love books with good rhyming rhythms like this one! It's really a non-fiction book in a fiction book format, because there are lots of different facts about rocks as well as a glossary in the back. But it's simple and attractive enough for my 3-year-old to enjoy.

Recommended Age: preschool - 2nd grade

P.S. Happy birthday to my husband Rocky!!! It's why I chose this book for this day. A "Rock" can also be an amazing, funny, smart, godly, good-looking man. :-)
