Profiling nearly 200 types of rocks and minerals from volcanic rocks and granite to sparkling diamonds and explosive sulfur, DK's Pocket Genius: Rocks and Minerals digs deep beneath the surface, informing young readers what each rock is made of, how they are formed and what they are used for, how to be a rock collector, and how to identify rocks and minerals. Also highlighting landmarks such as Devils Tower, Giant's Causeway, and Shiprock Pinnacle, this Pocket Genius title shows how rocks and minerals play a part in the formation of each.

Catalog entries include facts provided at-a-glance information, while locator icons offer immediately recognizable references to aid navigation and understanding, and fact files round off the book with fun facts such as record breakers and timelines. Each mini-encyclopedia is filled with facts on subjects ranging from animals to history, cars to dogs, and Earth to space and combines a child-friendly layout with engaging photography and bite-size chunks of text that will encourage and inform even the most reluctant readers.
