Scavenger Scout is not an ordinary seven-year-old. She’s a rock hound! Hunting for rocks is her passion and she loves to show and tell. The stories she tells are more fantasy than reality, but the rocks she hunts are real. Follow along as she haggles with a host of characters to add rocks to her collection. Follow Scout as she hunts for azurite, alexandrite and fluorite and find the rock on every page!

STEM-inspired story that encourages creative problem solving
Scavenger Scout uses science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) concepts to overcome the challenges she faces. Kids will delight in the real-life rock hounding tools Scout uses such as a crack hammer, chisel or a rock hammer. Kids can use their powers of observation to search for the rock on each page and come up with hypotheses for how they would get each of the rocks home.

Seek-and-Find Element
The story of Scavenger Scout will appeal to kids who love to hunt and who love adventure, so why not give them the opportunity to help Scout find the rock on every page? In each vignette, Scout hunts for a different rock and kids get to hunt with her! The difficulty level varies with each page so even kids as young as 2 or 3 will be able to find the rocks.

“Scavenger Scout: Rock Hound” is the perfect holiday gift or birthday gift, but would also be a great gift for when your favorite Scout moves up from Daisies to Brownies or Bobcat to Tiger Cub or Scout to Tenderfoot.

This book is the first book in a series and is crafted for ages 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, preschool and kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade.

Thoughts
This is a very cute book about a 7 yr. old girl who loves looking for all kinds of rocks. Her rock hunting takes her to a variety of locations as she chisels, hammers, etc.  her way to getting the rocks she wants, and uses clever ways to get them back home.

This book reminded me of my mom. She too loved rocks and loved to travel so every state etc. she visited she brought back a rock. She and my dad traveled a lot so she had a large collection. I have a few of the rocks in my yard.

I enjoyed the story and loved the beautiful illustrations. This is a book I think all young children will like.

A rhyme at the end of the book that I loved:
“Do you search for minerals everywhere?”
“Do you have more rocks than underwear?”

  1. My son was fascinated with rocks and was always picking one up. He went for a walk with my sister one time and got her to lug back and HUGE rock for him. We still laugh about that. This book sounds cute.

    • The book was a cute read, I enjoyed it. A lot of people have a facination for rocks. My fascination is for small painted rocks and seashells.

  2. This sounds like a fantastic book for children. I have rocks in my garden as well.
