    This picture book tells the true story of the author s father, who collected rocks and dreamed of working with them in some way Instead, he married, raised a family, and ran a gas station all the while collecting rocks, labeling them, and showing them to anybody who asked about them Then came the Great Depression and Hurst s father, like millions of other people, was out of a job When he wasn t looking for work, he spent time in a nearby museum, looking at the rock collection This turned out to be his lucky break you ll have to read the story to find out the results of the lucky break The illustrations, by James Stevenson, bring an uncommon common man to life A warm, wonderful, true life story.

    Charming illustrations and a true story make this book a gem The author is writing about her father who went from running a gas station to being curator of a large museum all because of his love of rocks There are several lessons here for my students perseverance, hard work, following your passion, all mixed with a bit of rock science A nice combination.
