Summary: Provides an overview of minerals including how they were formed, their characteristics, history, common kinds of minerals and their uses, and amazing mineral facts.
My Review: I love minerals! I choose this especially for me because I love learning about different minerals and looking at the pictures. In this book it does the "Did you know?" facts. Those can really broaden the mind of a child. These facts are the kinds that make you say "whoa!"
