Praise for The Best Book of Fossils, Rocks, and Minerals

Children's Literature
The illustrative full-color paintings present enough detail to illuminate the text without overwhelming it. Includes glossary and index. 2000, Kingfisher, Ages 6 to 10, $12.95. Reviewer: Susan Hepler—Children's Literature

School Library Journal
Visually inviting, this series entry has colorful drawings, a minimum of text, and a format dependent upon breaking a large topic into small segments that can be contained on facing pages.
