I'm Trying to Love Rocks

About the Book

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!

“Chock full of facts, diagrams, and examples, including fun end pages, this book will reward readers who return to it frequently. Bold lines, lively colors and clever use of white space make for an eye-catching read.” --Kirkus, Starred Review

“As in Barton’s I’m Trying to Love Spiders and Give Bees a Chance, the conversational text is so engaging that the information becomes more interesting and easier to absorb. With an energetic, disarmingly childlike look, the illustrations help viewers visualize and understand the concepts described. A welcome addition to this popular series.” --Booklist

". . . a fully engaged and engaging lecture on all the ways geology is amazing. Correct scientific vocabulary and plenty of diagrams make this curriculum ready." --BCCB
