4.0 out of 5 stars good book with lots of activities 22 Oct 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
my 6 year old has recenly got into rocks and fossils so I wanted to buy him a book on the subject. I looked at 2 books- this one and the Usborne Naturetrail book "Rocks & Fossils". I chose to buy this DK book but have since bought the other one as well since I did not feel that this was comprehensive enough. This book does have one very good element - it has fold out wipe clean covers showing over 100 different rocks and fossils and the places you are likely to find them so is a good guide to take out with you to help identify your finds, but is is mainly an activity book. There are about 23 different activites & experiments to try at home and when out & about which does not leave much room for information about the rocks themsleves and how they are created. This is where the Usborne book coems in (see my review of that book on its own page).

In conclusion, if you want a reference book, buy the Usborne book first. This does however make a very good companion to it and would be a good buy for some school holiday activities.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not about fossil hunting despite the title 20 Jan 2010
This book offers a range of indoor science exercises for kids - making fake lava, growing your own crystals and so on. Hardly any of the book is devoted to fossil hunting, which is bizarre given the title. The book is nice and your kids will like it, just as long as you realise the majority of it is not about hunting for fossils outdoors. It should be renamed 'Rock and Fossil Experiments' - the term 'Hunter' is just plain misleading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock & fossil hunter 13 Jan 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Exellent start for my 9 year old grandson who is a nature lover with and injuring mind ready for the scientific content this book has to offer. The type of book which you can dip in and out of with some great pictures - his words "just what I needed".
