If Rocks Could Sing: A story made of stones


I’m a rock collector. As are my parents. We stroll the beach and collect interesting stones, beach glass, and they live on our windowsills and countertops at home. Children’s author Leslie McGuirk has taken it to the next level, finding stones in her native Florida that take the shape of letters, numbers, even creatures. Her book, If Rocks Could Sing, is entirely made from photos of those stones, un-photoshopped.

“With sharp eyes, endless patience and vivid imagination, McGuirk seeks and finds rocks in the shapes of alphabet letters and items representing those letters. Begs to be pored over again and again.” — Kirkus Reviews
