Can someone suggest a good rock and mineral field guide?


Recommended Posts

The DK/Smithsonian Handbooks Rocks and Minerals is our favorite. We started using it a few years ago (on a big national parks trip), when the kids were early teens and 6ish. Perfect for the older kids and us, tricky then for youngest because of the descriptive terms. She was good with the basic information and the pictures, though. Now she drags the book all over the place!
