KATHY WEIDNER ZOEHFELD is a graduate of Mount Holyoke College, in South Hadley, Massachusetts, and University of Michigan Ann Arbor where she decided to put her science degrees to use by writing nonfiction books for kids. Since then she has written over 60 natural science and history books for young readers, and been awarded honors by the NSTA/CBC, the NCSS/CBC, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Library Association, the IRA/CBC Children’s Choice. When she’s not reading, researching, writing, or editing, Kathy loves to spend her free time exploring, doing field work, and preparing fossils in the laboratory for her local natural history museums.
From dazzling gemstones to sparkling crystals to molten lava, this brilliantly illustrated book introduces children to the exciting world of rocks and minerals, including both the building blocks and the bling. This level two reader, written in easy-to-grasp text, will help cultivate the geologists of tomorrow!

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. The inside back cover of the paperback edition is an interactive feature based upon the book. Level 1 books reinforce the content of the book with a kinesthetic learning activity. In Level 2 books readers complete a Cloze letter, or fun fill-in, with vocabulary words.
