Rocks and Minerals Sticker Book By Natural History Museum, London, England

Release Date - December 2013

Natural History Museum

Book Review by Bob Walch

This activity book features 100 stickers to showcase a wide array of rocks and minerals. The information here is rather basic and there’s not a lot of detail, but this is still a good, inexpensive book to get a youngster started on a study of this fascinating topic.

The young reader is encouraged to match the stickers up with the text that describes rocks and minerals as well as explains how they were formed. There are also a few games and puzzles that will engage the youngster in the topic.

Since the stickers are reusable, you can also think of some creative ways of using them other than just pasting them in the book. For example, make flash cards with the sticker on one side and the name on the other. Perhaps you can think up a board game using the stickers or use them to create your own original picture book.
