I am creating a kid-friendly book on the fascinating and dynamic geology of California. The book is geared toward K-8.

Why Geology For Kids?

For the entirety of my teenage son’s school career, he has been taught at home. We are not “traditional” home-schoolers in the sense you might believe. He has always been enrolled in a California independent study charter school. I have had the chance to be active in his choice of study and curriculum material. We gravitated toward independent study to foster his love of learning.

However, early on, I realized a gap in understanding the diverse geology of our state for young kids– especially for kids in home study programs. California has fascinating geology. I wanted to bring some of this interest to younger kids in a friendly, concise manner that could easily be used at home or in a classroom.
