It's time for another blog tour:
Sand to Stone and Back Again
by Nancy Bo Flood
ages 6 - 12
From the publisher:
A beautiful combination of photographs, drawings, and text illustrates the life cycle of sandstone in the landscape of the desert Southwest. Written for readers age four and up, this unique book features the many amazing forms of sand--from hoodoos to arches--revealing how change creates great beauty.
(In case you were wondering: a hoodoo is tall thin spire of rock, similar in shape to a totum-pole, composed of soft sedimentary rock and topped by a piece of harder, less easily-eroded stone that protects the column from the elements. Hoodoos range in size from that of an average human to heights exceeding a 10-story building.)
Come back tomorrow for gorgeous glimpses of the book's photography, and Wednesday for a review by my eleven year old brother.
