Everybody Needs a Rock by Byrd Baylor (author) and Peter Parnall (illustrator) / ISBN 9780684160177 / 32-page hardback, 9.5 x 8 inches, published by Atheneum Books for Young Readers, reprint of a 1974 book


Everybody needs a rock -- at least that's the way this particular rock hound feels about it in presenting her own highly individualistic rules for finding just the right rock for you.

Byrd Baylor lives and writes in Arizona, presenting images of the Southwest and an intense connection between the land and the people. Her prose illustrates vividly the value of simplicity, the natural world, and the balance of life within it.
