Scavenger Scout: Rock Hound Children's Picture Book Series
Scavenger Scout: Rock Hound is an award-winning children's book series for children ages 4 - 8. Scout is a young rock hound who tells tall tales about the real-life rocks in her collection. The stories she tells are more fantasy than reality, but the rocks she hunts are real. She haggles with a host of characters in order to take home her treasured stones. In book one, Scout hunts for alexandrite, azurite and fluorite. In the newly-released book two, Scout is back to hunt labradorite, halite, lace agate and lapis lazuli!
Scavenger Scout is one of the few STEM-inspired picture books that feature a female main character. Scout uses engineering and science in order to overcome challenges throughout the book.
