If Rocks Could Sing: A Discovered Alphabet

Calling all baby geologists and kid rock collectors!

Take a long look at If Rocks Could Sing by Leslie McGuirk, an avid searcher of rocks and interpreter of rock shapes.  All but one of the alphabet rocks came from Florida—it makes me want to run to the beach right now to find my own rock alphabet.

Readers of all ages will marvel at the creativity found within rocks.  About these photographs in the book, Leslie says, “These compositions are intended to allow these rocks to speak for themselves…and for us to imagine what we would hear if rocks could sing.”
