Scavenger Scout: Rock Hound
An award-winning children's book for ages 4 – 8. The first book in a series, Scavenger Scout is a young rock hound who regales us with her fantastical stories of how she acquired each of 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 this book, Scout hunts for alexandrite, azurite and fluorite.
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.
