I'm Trying to Love Rocks
Written & illustrated by Bethany Barton
picture book
Recommend Ages: 4-8

The fourth totally awesome, funny, and incredibly informative book in the “I’m Trying to Love…” book series!

Think rocks are boring? Hard to like? Kinda just sit there, doing nothing? Why even write a whole book about them?? Bethany Barton will tell you why . . . because we wouldn’t be here if there were no rocks! From the Grand Canyon to volcanos to diamonds and fossils, geology–the study of rocks–shows us where we’ve been and where we’re going. With tons of humor and scores of fascinating facts, Bethany Barton introduces younger readers to geology and why rocks matter . . . enough to write a whole book about them!

Grand Canyon
Written by Jason Chin
chapter book
Recommend Ages: 7-12

Rivers wind through earth, cutting down and eroding the soil for millions of years, creating a cavity in the ground 277 miles long, 18 miles wide, and more than a mile deep known as the Grand Canyon.

Home to an astonishing variety of plants and animals that have lived and evolved within its walls for millennia, the Grand Canyon is much more than just a hole in the ground. Follow a father and daughter as they make their way through the cavernous wonder, discovering life both present and past.

Weave in and out of time as perfectly placed die cuts show you that a fossil today was a creature much long ago, perhaps in a completely different environment. Complete with a spectacular double gatefold, an intricate map and extensive back matter.
