Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Book! This was a lovely book that talks about the different kinds of rocks...not in a scientific matter...but how some rocks are for skipping or splashing or wishing. A really nice story to share with young children...especially those children who love to find a rock here and there and pop it into their pocket.
