The kids LOVE using this book during our walks. I keep it in the pocket of the stroller, and we always come home with a pound or two of treasures. It doesn't have every single type of rock and mineral, obviously, but we've yet to find anything that we couldn't identify in this pamphlet. Plus, it's laminated, so it doesn't matter if it gets rained on.

What an amazing little pamphlet!
IT GIVES YOU ALL THE ROCK CLASSES AS BEACH PEBBLES.
It is not trying to identify each and every possible mineral (oh well, too bad, buy a geology text instead) but it does present the different rock classes very nicely by referring to hand samples you could find on most freshwater or ocean beaches.
