The Rock People

imageThe Rock People first struck me as a very different children’s book written by Sue Valiquett with illustrations by Kate Lazuka.

The photographs offered fun insight into little Nae-Nae’s world in the city, and her long-desired trip to the family beach house. The black-and-white pictorial brought me back to childhood trips to the ocean, collecting all the treasures the sea coughed up. When she happens upon The Rock People her mother shared the Legend of the Rock People. Nae Nae listened intently as her mother told the story of an earth that was once pristine, now littered and thick with smog, and learned how the Rock People planned to change all of that. A fun way to help children learn about the environment, The Rock People website also offers educational tools for kids.
