If Rocks Could Sing is just a lovely little book, one I found far more engaging than I would have expected, given that I don't often pick up alphabet books. The letter-rocks were amazing - I don't think I've ever seen rocks in these shapes before! - as were those used to represent the various objects and/or concepts mentioned in the text. In this extremely creative concept book Leslie McGuirk uses rocks to go through the alphabet. McGuirk uses real rocks found on the beaches of Florida that look like letters A, B, C and so on, and even finds rocks that look like the objects that start with those letters.

A Discovered Alphabet. by Leslie McGuirk & illustrated by Leslie McGuirk. With sharp eyes, endless patience and vivid imagination, McGuirk seeks and finds rocks in the shapes of alphabet letters and items representing those letters. Using these finds and some inventive photography, she has created a most unusual alphabet book. The opening spread lays out all the amazingly accurate stone letters (some uppercase, some lowercase) on a background of soft, natural, earthy beige. Discovering nature’s alphabet.

This book is a great way to creatively teach and reinforce alphabet skills in young students. I only wish that the author could have chosen something different, almost anything else really, for letter "G". This page uses rocks that look like ghosted and they are on a black backdrop. One of them is truly scary for young kids and I had to improvise for that page, using "Gone. Letter G for gone. The page is gone!" It works, but I would love to have seen "grapes," "goldfish," "gumdrop." I can't imagine these would have been hard to find in rock form. Otherwise, wonderful book!

I read this to my kindergarteners every year--we all thoroughly enjoyed it! Warning: if you read this to your class, you will have students bringing you cool rocks for the rest of the year!

This book is a "must have" for every child's library. It's very creative and my kids love how the rocks are natural and we're found along the beach, one of their favorite places to be. I give it as a gift to friends when they have a baby and they always comment on how unique it is.

My daughter is learning her alphabets now, so she loves pointing at the rocks and saying what letter it is. I love how it stimulates the imagination - a rock version of "what does that cloud look like?" and encourages us to really notice our surroundings. I plan on using this book as a launching pad to encourage my kids to find things in nature that speak (sing) to them.

This book is truly a piece of art and unlike anything else. The author created this book showcasing stones she has collected over the years. The stones are in the shape of letters and for each, something that starts with that letter.
We live near Lake Michigan and spend a lot of time collecting very similar looking stones. I bought this book for my four children, ages 7 and under, so they could be inspired in their own rock collecting and so that I could display it in my youngest son's lake/beach-theamed nursery.
This book is beautifully done, and I would highly recommend.

I collect heart shaped rocks which are hard to find so this book spoke to my heart. It is a great book not because of what is says but because of the story behind finding each alphabet shaped rock. Very creative.

I have been using this book to share my love of rocks. I go to city recreation centers, libraries, and schools with my "rocks that look like other things" and this book. We read the book; I give them rocks, and we all have a blast looking for what else is there besides the rock. Often the "grownups" have to be helped to see "the other things" by the younger people whose imaginations soar. If you want to see smiles, share this book. (If you want to see yawns, go to "Y is for yawn" and open wide while you're reading. It never fails.) If you buy this book, I'm sure you will wear it out; it's that good.
This is such a unique and "fun to look at" book that I had to have my own copy. Of course, I realized that my grandchildren might find it interesting, too. When I handed the book to my son, who is 37 years old, I said that the author had spent years collecting rocks that looked like letters, enough for the whole alphabet. He, too, was amazed and said "I bet she shaped some of these herself." No, she really did collect these shapes from nature, and also the rock objects that have beginning letters, such as a "potato" for the letter "p". Certainly a book for all ages! Lots of visual fun!
