My son carries rocks in his pockets...??

Dear Circ,

My son likes to explore. Everything! We hike, we camp, we like the outdoors. And he looks at everything. Nothing escapes him. Plants, trees, birds, animals, even rocks. Especially rocks. My wife says his pockets are always full of rocks. He brings them home, and then he asks, "What is it, Dad?" "Where did it come from?" "Why is it here?" I never have an answer for him. He probably thinks I'm not too smart, well, that I'm as dumb as a box of rocks, as my dad used to say.

I've heard all this buzz about science kits. Have you got anything to help out this poor dad and his son?

Dear George,

No offense to your dad, but a box of rocks is not dumb. A box of rocks is full of mystery and history and puzzles, and even answers. Your son is asking all the right questions, and we have a kit just made for the two of you. We have a geology kit that explains how to identify minerals, how to classify rocks, and help you understand how those rocks formed and what they can tell you about the history of the earth. You and your son can become volcanoes of knowledge, erupting geologic information!
