Jo, from our Visitor Experience team, says: "as you'd expect from DK, this is a colourful, child-friendly book packed with information that kids will love and probably many adults don't know either! Do you know your amber from your copal, your crinoids from your coccoliths? Great illustrations of magnifications, rocks in situ and uses of these materials in real-life. My favourite bit is the rock cycle demonstration done with old wax crayons!"
