Less than a week until A Rock Can Be… comes out! This Sunday, March 1, the final book in the Can Be… trio tumbles into stores. I’ve been thinking about what it is I have really tried to do with these books, and I feel like a lot of what these books are REALLY about, besides leaves and water and rocks, is wonder. Our world is so amazing, even the plain old things I take for granted or think I know about. But looking and thinking and wondering makes me realize, every single time, how cool the earth is. How beautifully its parts work together. How creative we can be in enjoying, using, and interacting with it. So I made this little graphic (using one of Violeta Dabija’s beautiful illustrations from Rock) to try to capture and share that and to inspire you educators to look at the books from that angle, if you haven’t already. If you like this, I’d be grateful if you’d pass it along via whatever social media you like. Thank you!
