    1. This was an interesting book and one that I think was suppose to have been in my recommendations that my sister fished out. She has at least admitted that so far and I think whenever I am over she is going to be fishing on my account for other such books. Anyway this book explores not all the types of rocks that are out there but the shapes or appearances they may have then gives them names such as the famous worry stone, the climbing rock, the skipping rock, etc. So for those who are wanting t [...]

    2. This is an entertainingg, but not very academic, book about rocks. The narrative is lyrical and inspires a bit of whimsy and imagination more than scientific discovery, but it's a fun book to read aloud and our girls really liked it. For some reason, collecting and playing with rocks is a popular thing for our girls and they love to show me their 'gems' and interesting finds. I also shared with them that I have often bring home a rock from my travels and we used to keep them as part of the bed i [...]

    3. This was a good book to use during the engage part of a lesson on rocks. It uses a lot of descriptive words to describe different rocks. I would pass out different rocks to the students and have them describe their rocks. We would then together write on the board descriptive words for the rocks from the book. I would use this book in grades second or third.

    4. Non-Fiction. Grades 1-5.This book has a very calm tone about it, and is great for a read a loud in a classroom. We see kids finding rocks and starting rock collections all the time, why not give them some names to go along with them? This second-person point of view is great for students who find rocks fascinating. Students who just need to relax can also listen to this book and get some ideas for what type of rocks they can come across. This could be turned into a fun game by having students fi [...]

    5. I absolutely adore rocks. Rocks of all sizes and kinds. Look in one of my pockets and you are sure to find a rock. Therefore I wanted to adore this book and I did like it but I hoped for the author to convey a bit more information on rocks. Perhaps just a note below the page's lyrical text saying the rock pictured was granite or something. But for kids whose parents don't like rocks maybe reading this book will open their eyes.

    6. I've always been one to pick up rocks, so I might have titled the book with a "when" rather than an "if." What a great book! With hand-tinted black & white photos, spare use of text and image on the white horizontal pages, the visual aspect of the book is a bit like finding a "pleasing rock." The simple verse touches on so many different kinds of rock (such as skipping rock), with more emphasis on the emotions that a rock might evoke or the uses we might find for it. Many of the reviews high [...]

    7. Christian, P. (2000). If you find a rock. New York, NY: Voyager Books Harcourt, Inc.For anyone who has ever picked up a rock and knows the feeling of holding endless possibilities, this book will speak to you. Lush photographs and poetic text explains child-friendly uses for an assortment of rocks.Christian’s text reads like poetry with a soothing, descriptive style. The rocks are classified as children would find them; suitable for specific actions. Lember’s hand-tinted black and white phot [...]

    8. Basically, this book is about different types of rocks that can be utilized in many ways. The rocks can be found in various places, have different textures, sizes, etc. I can use this book to introduce a third grade lesson on rocks, simply getting the students to inquire about rocks and become anxious to find rocks. I can implement a lesson by going on a quick field trip by having students go outside and find a rock. We can discuss during whole group different types of rocks that the students fi [...]

    9. Rocks can be used for many things. You can skip flat rocks across the surface of a lake. You can write on pavement with chalky rocks. You can even use the really big rocks to climb on. I enjoyed reading about different uses or types of rocks that I never would have thought of and the author gave great descriptions of each rock. The pictures were all real photos taken but some did not show the rock up close so that students may see details. Many children play with rocks and come up with their own [...]

    10. If You Find a Rock would be great for k-3rd grade children when teaching students about rockse book basically explores different types of rocks we can find on Earth. This book would be good to get students interested in learning more about rocks as an introductory book to engage students. Students could go outside and pick a rock and analyze it and even maybe write a story about it for part of language arts. Students can predict how old they think it is and compare rocks with their friends. They [...]

    11. Photographs demonstrate all this things you can do with a rock such as skipping and making rings in the water. This is an excellent example of literary/ narrative non-fiction. It is also the peaceful story of actively investigating rocks. This book will fill kids with ideas of things to do with rocks, and might possibly make them want to learn even more about rocks and other related sciences. It makes a good addition to a lesson on soil, rocks, and minerals. It is definitely a hit for the outdoo [...]

    12. This book surprised me because I thought it was going to be a scientific book about rocks. Instead, I think I would categorize this book as one to use when teaching writing. Look at an object, think about its uses and then challenge yourself, think of it's unconventional uses. I love this book because the author really writes about what we think about when we see certain rocks. It's not if it's an igneous or metamorphic or sedimentary rock. It's what is hiding under this rock, it's watch me skip [...]

    13. Title: If You Find A RockAuthor: Peggy ChristianGrades: 5thThis science poem book would be a great way to introduce a lesson on the rock cycle, and also introduce different types of rocks. It would be engaging for students who truly enjoy the discovery of different rocks and can also be exposing students to rocks that they never knew where they had come from before. They have different examples of igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks (which you could explain to the class after reading the [...]

    14. This was a great book that used a lot of descriptive words to talk about different rocks. I would use this book during the engage portion of my unit on rocks. I would pass out different rocks or allow the students to go outside and find different rocks and have the students describe their rock to a friend. We could make a list on the board of the difference of our rocks by using descriptive words and then say what our rocks would be used for like in the book. I would use this book in grades 2-3. [...]

    15. Grade 3-5, Introduction to the Rock Cycle.This book could be used in a lesson about rocks, as well as a lesson about poetry. Better yet? Integrate them! As part of your science expedition about the rock cycle, incorporate math by measuring, graphing, and sorting rocks. Integrate writing by talking about the poetic structure of the book. Offer an opportunity to write a poem about a special rock, or a poem based on an element that they like about the way this poetry book is structured.

    16. A very neat book for rock collectors or any child interested in rocks. Obviously, it could be paired with a lesson on rocks. I like what we did in class, bring in our own pet rocks and sharing them. The students can classify them by their uses with this book and compare the rocks. You could also talk about what cause the rock to look they way they do, and relate that to constructive and deconstructive forces. Grades: K- rocks, 5th- constructive and deconstructive forces

    17. If You Find a Rock is a book that describes the many feelings and activities that a rock can bring. This book could be used in a science lesson on the engage part of the lesson to introduce the different types of rocks to students. Students could pick out their own rock, observe its characteristics, and describe how they would use their rock and what significance it can have to them. This lesson could be used for students in Kindergarten through third grade.

    18. Good book for grade 1-3. When teaching students a lesson on rocks and minerals, this would be good for elaborating and perhaps using it for further explaining. Because this text is so descriptive this would be great to use for a writing activity. Give each students a "mystery" rocks and have them write a short descriptive poem about what they "think" of the rock, then allow them to explore the characteristics of their rocks to see if their descriptive poems describes their rock.

    19. This is a good book to use as an introduction to different types of rocks for first through third grade students. Although the book does not use scientific terms to describe the rocks, it does sort them into different categories based on their texture, appearance, as well as other factors that can be observed. This is good practice for students to be able to sort things into different groups based on descriptors that they come up with.

    20. I love the beautiful photographs in this imaginative book about different types of rocks. The book identifies different "types" of rocks you might findwishing rocks, skipping rocks, writing rocks, and so on. This really got my students interested in finding rocks of their own and determining what type of rock they thought it wast scientific in nature, but does get children thinking about and observing rocks and some of their properties.

    21. Author: Peggy ChristianGrade Level: K-3Content: characteristics of rocks and variety of uses for rock. Book illustrates actual pictures of rocks so that children may make connections from pictures. Book provides the reader with different purposes different rocks have, such as wishing rocks, and worry rocks.

    22. This book was a whimsical look at rocks that was a nice change from our other more scientific rock books. It's really written from the point of view of a child and what children do with rocks. It reminded me of my childhood playing with rocks and I really enjoyed reading it to my son. The photographs are lovely and whimsical too. A great read!

    23. I thought this book would be about different kinds of rocks--and it is. But I thought it would be about igneous and metamorphic and sedimentary rocks, and it isn't. It's about skipping and stepping and climbing and sifting and throwing rocks. It's almost a paean to rocks with wonderful photos of children involved with each of the rocks enumerated.

    24. This book is about different types of rocks. Not classified by science, but classified/described by the author. This book would be great to use in an elementary-middle school classroom as it could be used to lead into a discussion of other types of rocks or a writing activity over a memory or rock experience.

    25. Fabulous introduction to rocks, especially from a child's point of view. No classification other than throwing rocks and climbing rocks and wishing rocks and stepping rocks and chalk rocks, etc. Wonderful photography to go along with the text as well. If you have a child who's interested in rocks, give them this book.

    26. This book describes types of rocks you can find. It can be used to teach geology. It does not describe what kind of rock it is but it can show students that there are many different rocks. It describes shapes and things that you can do with the work. This book would be good for first- fifth graders.

    27. This book can be used in a science lesson about rocks. The poem can introduce students to ways to identify rocks. after this book, I would give students rocks similar from the book and have them identify characteristics, find similarities and differences, then classify them according to our observations.

    28. If You Find a Rock teaches children the differences between rocks. Not all rocks are shaped the same way nor do they all feel the same way. Even though the names of the rocks in this book are not scientific, it still get the point across that rocks come from different areas of the earth and therefore have different features.Recommended grade level: K-4

    29. This book is If You Find a Rock by Petty Christian. This book can be used for lessons on rocks and the rock cycle. This book will help students focus on rock characteristics. This book can also be used for lesson on poems because it contains many different feelings associated with rocks. This book can be used in Kindergarten to 3 grade classrooms.

    30. This book would be great to use in a 3rd grade classroom when introducing the kinds of rocks and their uses. It brings a twist on how to look at rocks instead of just looking at them and thinking about them as a thing. A great activity to do with the kids would be to allow them to write their own poem about a rock.
