Can a Rock Grow? is perfect for kids who love exploring nature and have big questions about how the world works, like . . .  

What shape is a rock?

How does it get that shape?

And does a rock ever look like a rose?

This new picture book explores different shapes that rocks can be—flat rocks, round rocks, sharp rocks, and even hexagon-shaped rocks—while explaining how rocks change over time. It's a fun, inviting, and scientifically entertaining book, sure to delight rockhounds, young and old.

Can a Rock Grow? is now available as an eBook on Amazon, as well as in a paperback format through Barnes & Noble and other major booksellers. The hardcover will be released in June, but is available for preorder now.

Plus, I'm creating a coloring book for this book with 30+ pages of coloring pages and activities! Anyone who preorders Can a Rock Grow? will also get a PDF copy of this coloring book for FREE.
