Rock and Roll

We rated this book:


Rock and Roll, two enormous boulders, sit way up high in the mountains, close enough to see each. They’ve stood the test of time, watching more sunrises and sunsets than they can count. They admire the world and all its beauty despite the tumultuous weather they’ve endured. Plants and animals have marked them with fossilized imprints. One day, something miraculous happens – humans come to visit. They adorn Rock and Roll with embellishments, and they begin to wish for the other’s ornamental treasures. Jealousy tears them apart, leaving them as fragments of themselves. Humility washes over them as if they’re born anew.

This is a masterfully crafted book that’s message is multi-layered in its complexity. On the surface, and applicable to its youngest readers – those ages five to seven – the story relates to nature, friendship, envy, and restoration. At its core, lies the deeper sentiment that excess often leads to destruction.

Set in a rainbow of vibrant hues – from fluorescent orange to sapphire blue – the illustrations are gorgeous – appearing in eye-catching spreads of fossil patterns. Young children will be drawn to their rich quality and crystalline appearance. They’ll likely be what draws their attention most.
