Basher Science: Rocks and Minerals

A Gem of a Book

Basher Science

Created and illus. by Simon Basher, written by Dan Green

Kingfisher

Simon Basher is back with another zany primer to science! Following his 3 successful titles on the basics of chemistry, physics, and biology, ROCKS AND MINERALS is an in-depth look at the ground beneath our feet. Like his other titles, Basher presents these topics through charming and adorable illustrations and pairs them with basic information told from a first person perspective. He develops a community of characters based on the things that form the foundations of our planet: rocks, gems, crystals, fossils and more. And what's more, he makes it understandable, interesting, and cute. It's not what you expect out of a science primer.

School Library Journal
This unique book gives each rock and mineral personality and pizzazz through the use of a conversational, first-person text. . . . Readers will enjoy and learn from this fact-filled, accessible book.
