Buy it: Everybody Needs a Rock
Everybody Needs a Rock (By Byrd Baylor) – In this book, a little girl explains that everyone needs a rock for a friend and she has 10 rules for picking a good one. According to her, you need to get down low and look the rocks in the eye. You need to find one that feels good in your hand and in your pocket. Smell the rock, feel the rock, look at it in the bathtub and choose it all by yourself. My daughter, age 5, loves this simple message that everyone sees beauty in nature differently and you should go in search of what is beautiful to you. And you can even find it in a rock.
