Can a Rock Grow?

We rated this book:


Do you like rocks? or are you an aspiring geologist? You may ask yourself can a rock grow? In this book, we find out if rocks can grow and what causes it. Typically a rock doesn’t grow bigger but there are many different reasons why a rock would change its shape or get smaller. Natural elements like wind, gravity, and rain are some reasons why rocks would change shape or get smaller over a long amount of time. This book is also very informative and describes many different types of rocks and how they are formed.

This book has nice life-like illustrations of rocks, but like many rocks, the illustrations are somewhat dull colored. Overall, I liked this book, as I like learning about different types of rocks and how each one is different. Different types of rocks are formed in different ways over a long period of time, and rocks are not formed or shaped quickly. My favorite type of rocks in the book are obsidian and flint because they can form sharp edges as they break or can be carved into arrowheads.
