Unearth our planet’s glittering treasures—a fascinating book of gems for kids 6 to 9
What do dusty old rocks have to do with the shiny, colorful jewels that you see in rings and necklaces? Everything! Set off on a journey inside Earth and learn the different ways our planet uses rocks and minerals to make gemstones.
