5.0 out of 5 stars Great book!
By josie on August 30, 2018
Love all of Dianna Hutts Aston books in this series, and “A Rock is Lively” is no different. Great illustrations and one of our favorite books to read! Has a great layout of a bunch of minerals/rocks in the back that can be used to match with their physical counterparts. The girls love it!
