Everybody Needs A Rock

I have travled to the Southwest to take care of Holly and Brianna while their parents are working in Houston.

Flying into the Mesa Airport, I am once again amazed at the colors of the dessert. This week browns and sand tones are dominant with splashes of turquoise and ochre.

I can't help but be reminded of the book, "Everybody Needs a Rock" by Byrd Baylor. It was a childhood staple for my children and I hope for yours as well.

Luckily there is a new soft cover in print so it is once again available.

With so many technical advances in our world, isn't it nice to know that maybe all we really need is a rock in our pocket?

Check out the book for Earth Day, find your own perfect rock, and keep it in your pocket.
