About the book: The Pebble in My Pocket is a narrative nonfiction book which follows the journey of a single pebble from its origins 480 million years ago to the present day. It tells the history of the earth from a geological perspective following the processes of rock formation and erosion that creates new pebbles all over the world.
Reasons for selection: The science curriculum for Year Three includes learning about rocks which can be linked to aspects of physical geography. The Pebble in My Pocket is a book which covers difficult concepts using the familiar object of a pebble. Meredith Hooper uses metaphor to make the subject matter accessible while using terminology which will extend the children’s vocabulary. The use of movement verbs to describe all aspects of the journey of the pebble will lead into dance and poetry work. The rich illustrations work well with the text to support the reader.
