If Rocks Could Sing: A Discovered Alphabet Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Amazing rocks, found on a stretch of beach near the author's home, comprise this unique alphabet book. A is for Addition, and there are rocks in the shape of real numbers, too. B is for Bird, and there is a bird rock on a nest with an egg. G is for Ghosts, and there is a host of rocks that look like ghosts! Children and adults alike will pore over these fascinating rocks, and will be inspired collect their own.

Review:

"McGuirk has assembled a collection of 26 rocks shaped like every letter of the alphabet, plus many more shaped like objects for each letter. 'A is for Addition,' McGuirk starts, with a chalkboard slate on the right photographed with rocks shaped like a one, eight, an equal sign, and a nine (a magnet stands in for the plus sign). For 'D,' there's a dog-shaped rock with a collar, and 'G is for Ghost' shows 16 amorphous stones with wailing mouths and empty eyes. It's an unusual labor of love that may have kids checking the ground for familiar shapes. All ages. (May)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Displays photographs of rocks that resemble the letters of the alphabet and objects represented by each letter.
