About the Series

This high-interest, educationally vetted series of beginning readers features the magnificent images of National Geographic, accompanied by texts written by experienced, skilled children's book authors.

Comments about National Geographic Readers: Rocks and Minerals:

bought this for my 8 yr old niece who is into geodes, etc. Pictures are great. I'm a little worried text may be too "babyish" for her... she's quite a reader.
Won't be giving it to her till her visit this summer.
