Imaginatively written and uniquely illustrated by William G. Hosford, Geo The Geode is the informative picturebook formatted documentation providing young readers with a descriptive introduction to rocks. Specifically designed to be of interest and easily accessible for young readers, Geo The Geode follows "Geo" as he tours America and the world describing the most interesting and useful basics features, aspects, and qualities of rocks in a fun and active way. A novel approach to geology, Geo The Geode is very highly recommended for all young readers, as well to teachers, librarians, and parents searching for a complete and thoroughly "kid friendly" introduction to study of rocks, stones and minerals. --Midwest Book Review: Small Press Bookwatch, July 2006
