* "Providing signposts about Earth's change from the beginning of time to the present day, Booth's study gives energy and intrigue to objects that seem deceptively quiet and ordinary"--Publishers Weekly, starred review
"An illustrated love letter to deep time and earth's memory."--The Marginalian
"An attractive and informative option for budding geologists." --Booklist
"Booth's imaginative stories about one stone align with the major rock groups...and employ dramatic descriptions of the events the stone experiences....Readers are encouraged to seek out their own stones, "imagine everything the stone has been...and what it might become," and consider the continuity of change."--Horn Book
