The Pebble in My Pocket

by Meredith Hooper & Chris Coady

Where do pebbles come from? How were they made?

This book tells the story of a pebble, from its origins in a fiery volcano 480 million years ago to a busy, modern landscape. Readers follow the processes of rock formation and erosion that create new pebbles all over the world.

Programme of Study
